PROUDFOOT POEMS 

Proudfoot writes poems inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien’s stories of Middle-earth.

The poems are often written about characters from the stories and are readily recognisable to those who are familiar with the stories. Others are inspired by people met and places visited. Below are three of Proudfoot’s stories in verse form.

MORNING STAR, EVENING STAR.

 

In an age long, long ago,

Wandering through an Elven wood,

A lone warrior did espy

A maiden beautiful to behold.

 

As dark as the shadows was her hair,

And bright starlight shone in her eyes;

Golden flowers were on her cloak

And blue as the sky was her dress.

An Elven Princess was this maiden,

The” Morning Star” of her people.

 

Hopelessly in love he did fall,

This mortal man her heart did win.

 

But her father, the Elven Lord,

On their new found love he did frown.

To be betrothed to his daughter,

This mortal man seemed not worthy,

With his people scattered and few,

And his heritage dispossessed.

 

A high price was set by the Lord

To win his only daughter’s love.

He set a task to undertake

That seemed difficult to achieve.

With faith, wisdom and steadfast love,

The Princess gave her lover strength.

 

Against the Dark Lord,

He would succeed,

Against the darkness,

The tide would turn.

 

The Princess chose a mortal life,

To remain with the one she loved.

After enduring many trials,

In peace they lived for many years.

 

In this Age, not long ago,

Wandering through an Elven wood,

A lone warrior did espy,

A maiden beautiful to behold.

 

As dark as the shadows was her hair,

And Elven light shone in her eyes.

Silver and blue coloured her cloak

And gems like stars were on her brow.

An Elven Princess was this maiden,

The “Evening Star” of her people.

 

Hopelessly in love he did fall,

This mortal man her heart did win.
