I promised you all that I would carry on with my poetry, at the same time as writing my story, and I have.
Another Sam poem By Michelle Frodo
Sam could have gone anywhere, could have stayed with any of his friends and been safe, but instead he followed Frodo.
Where I'd Rather Be
I loved my home in Hobbiton
I'd go back anyday,
but it wouldn't be the same
If you weren't going to stay.
Merry and Pippin were always good fun
their jokes made me laugh and smile,
But I couldn't go away with them
I'd miss you after a while.
The Inn of the Prancing Pony
Stood in the centre of Bree,
I suppose there could be worse places
But that didn't matter to me.
I know Strider would give me protection
He'd die if he felt that he should,
but he cannot go any further
Though I rather wish that he could.
Rivendell rich elven kingdom
Home to the fair elvish race,
but sadly it isn't where you are
And so I don't stay at that place.
Legolas strong elven archer
And Gimli the dwarf was Gloins' son,
both went in the other direction
But I'll stay by your side till it's done.
Moria dark and forbidding
But probably safer then here,
but you carried on so I followed
Despite my great anguish and fear.
Gandalf fell down into darkness
Both fire and shadow defied,
though needless were non-of his doings
In Kazad-dum he sadly died
Lothlorien wood of the lady
There I would gladly have stayed,
but ask, and I will gladly follow
As I see that your will starts to fade.
Boromir steward of Gondor
Seemed very noble and true,
but I could never forgive him
As he tried to do harm to you.
No oath held me to follow you
I could stay anywhere,
but instead I'm off to Mordor
My doom awaits me there.
I didn't have to come with you
But Frodo don't you see?
Despite it all, right by your side
Is where I'd rather be.
Elbereth bless those people who press the little button down there.
