Oh, but I do love this! So appropriate for Theoden and his passing.

Author Reply: Thank you very much!

Ah, it is indeed appropriate for the Yuletide season, but I rejoice to read it any old time!

Good to hear from you again!

Author Reply: Thank you! I wrote it around that time, but couldn't post it until the results of the Tolkien Mailing Competition were announced, and then I realized I forgot to hit "publish" after I uploaded it here...

Beautifully written. I suspect this poetic form isn't easy!

Author Reply: Thank you!

Delightful! It's wonderful to imagine a lifetime of Yule cheer for a character who's been through so much tragedy.

Author Reply: All of Tolkien's characters deserve a bit of a Yule cheer :)

So nice to see Toby being lauded as he deserves. Delightful!

Some of them slipped on the coals smoldering
As Tobold smelled the smoke, he smiled broadly
Better than boiling them were the leaves burning


A delightful poem, and it's nice to think that Rohan's bards are singing of Shire history.

How utterly fitting! Yes, worthy of the Master himself!

Was listening to the Dwarves singing "Far Over the Misty Mountains Cold" and shivering at how Shore managed to adapt Tolkien's own poetry and sound so utterly Dwarvish! Am shivering in anticipation!

How wonderful. I especially love the final lines.

Three? I'd heard but two, with the first being released December 14th and the second next year in December! But after today watching the video blogs regarding the making of the films I must say I am eager to see them! And it's lovely to see Orlando Bloom back in Legolas's makeup and costumes, as well as both Ian Holme and Elijah Woods having at least cameo appearances. And the gown they had Cate Blanchett in as Galadriel was wonderful! And Howard Shore is doing the music again! Hooray! Hooray! Hooray! (I fall at Shore's feet and cover them with kisses of adoration!)

Author Reply: Yes, it's offficially three now! The third should be in July 2013.

Alas for Maedhros, as in the end he gives himself to the flames to end it all!

Author Reply: Just like his father, he ends in flames...
