One very minor technical pickie: Middle Earth should be Middle-earth. ;) Thanks for sharing this lovely poem on the founding of Gondor!
Ha! Yes, when I finally tried my hand at a story, I looked up Middle-earth. Although, I'll have to go back and double check because I don't think I used a hyphen, hm...so thanks! And thanks for reading this poem, I really appreciate the review, especially from such a talented LOTR writer! ~Gina :)
Oh yes there would. Elves have long lives maybe he will be there. *sigh*
Thank you! I don't know about all that, but I do enjoy the challenge of writing structured poetry and am glad it turned out well. Thanks for reading it and leaving such a nice review! ~Gina :)
I don't know if I'll read it but I have seen the movies and now I have a reason to once again ogle Orlando erm I mean watch the wonderful story.
It would be nice if there was a way to work him into The Hobbit, wouldn't it? ;)
I liked it :) As mentioned before I'm not good with poetry and I havn't read the LotR series but I like your writings so I wanted to read this too. Great job two thumbs up.
Oh! Does this make you want to read LOTR then?? :) It's my favorite! It's so grand and epic and beautiful and Tolkien's poetry is way better than mine! On the other hand, his prose can be a bit heavy and some people just aren't that into it. Have you seen the movies? The two brothers in the second stanza are those two big statues on the river in the first movie. Anyway - thanks for stopping to read this, I'm glad you liked it! :)
It turned out beautifully, Gina! The image of the past converging on the present is stunning.
Thanks, Julie! I don't know about stunning - those two lines are still rather off - but I'm glad you like it! Thanks for looking at it! :)
