Poems from Proudfoot 2

Proudfoot has written two new poems based on Middle-earth. The poems exhibit qualities found in J.R.R. Tolkien’s writings. In them you find the qualities of love, hope, dedication to duty and the spirit to dream of a better future.

Each Day Now She Waits

She sits by the window
And creates with love
A new banner of black
With stars made of gems;

And there in the centre
A tree coloured white
Beneath a crown shining
Of silver and gold.

A banner for the new hope
She perceives in him
A banner for valour
A banner for kings.

Each day now she waits
For the end of shadow and war
The eve of the light and the peace
When her lover she will meet once more.

He went to the shadows
A long time ago
A cold winter’s evening
The company left too.

She dreams of a future
When all is at peace
And once more with him walking
Through flowers of gold.

She has chosen her future
Her doom it is sealed
For the love of this man
She knows what it means.

Each day now she waits
For the end of shadow and war
The eve of the light and the peace
When her lover she will meet once more.

Dreams of Another Land

Sitting by the open door
Dreaming of a place where adventure lies
Staring at the far blue hills
Seeing the birds that are flying;
They are flying to far away
To the hills and the places far beyond
The little boy sits and stares
And he’s dreaming of tales from another land.

Thinking of his uncle’s tales
Telling of places and people so strange
Looking in the old brown chest
Holding items that are so rare;
They are items from far away
From the lands and kingdoms far beyond
The little boy sits and stares
And he thinks of legends from another land.

Packing up his little bag
Placing in it all the items he needs
Picking up his wooden sword
Then he chooses a walking staff;
He is planning to go away
To the lands and kingdoms far beyond;
The little boy stands and stares
Then he steps on the road to another land.
