Title: Legolas' Lament For Aragorn
Disclaimer: The characters here are the property of JRR Tolkien, and alas, not me.
Author's Note: I'm no big poetry writer, I write it only when it pops into my head. Which this did – at half eleven at night. So I had to get up and write it down. Its not very Elven at all…but it fits more with Legolas' thoughts than anyone else I think. May incorporate it into a fic at some point but I was hoping for some constructive criticism from anyone who has something to say. Thanks – Gevaudan.
I have followed you for many a year,
Along the woodland way.
From the early break of dawn,
Until the close of day.
But soon your journey will be made,
Far from where I abide.
And I will follow you no more,
Nor travel at your side.
And alone I will sit, beneath the trees,
And think on days long past.
Hoping Mandos guides your way
And you find peace at last.
