‘It is past noon,’ said Gandalf,

‘and we at any rate have not eaten

since early morning.

Yet I wish to see Treebeard

as soon as may be.

Did he leave me no message,

or has plate and bottle driven it

from your mind?’ […]

‘He is not as other men of this time, Pippin, and whatever be his descent from father to son, by some chance the blood of Westernesse runs nearly true in him; as it does in his other son, Faramir, and yet did not in Boromir whom he loved best. He has long sight. He can […]

Then suddenly Denethor laughed. He stood up tall and proud again, and stepping swiftly back to the table he lifted from it the pillow on which his head had lain. Then coming to the doorway he drew aside the covering, and lo! he had between his hands a palantir. And as he held it up, […]

Rc – Tolkien – LotR – The Shadow takes another shape

Por |noviembre 13th, 2016|

‘… Always after a defeat and a respite,

the Shadow takes another shape and grows again.’

«I wish it need not have happened in my time,»

«So do I,» said Gandalf,

«and so do all who live to see such times.

But that is not for them to decide.

All we have to decide is

what to do with the time […]

Rc – Tolkien – LotR – A witless worm have you become

till the lightning falls.

The earth was much nearer, and below them were trees that […]

Rc – Tolkien – Hobbit – By good management and good luck

Por |septiembre 3rd, 2016|

There was a flat space on the top of the hill of stone
and a well worn path with many steps leading down it to the river,
across which a ford of huge flat stones led to the grass-land beyond the stream.
There was a little cave (a wholesome one with a pebbly floor)
at the foot […]
