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,»

said Frodo.

«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

The wise speak only of what they know,
Gríma son of Gálmód.

A witless worm have you become.

Therefore be silent,
and keep your forked tongue behind your teeth.

I have not passed through fire and death
to bandy crooked words with a serving-man
till the lightning falls.

Rc – Tolkien – LotR – The Blade that was Broken

Por |octubre 27th, 2016|

Slowly Aragorn
unbuckled his belt
and himself set his sword
upright against the wall.

‘Here I set it,’ he said;
‘but I command you
not to touch it,
nor to permit any other
to lay hand on it.

In this elvish heath dwells
the Blade that was Broken
and has been made again.

Telchar first wrought it
in the deeps of time.

Death shall come
to any man that draws
Elendil’s […]

Rc – Tolkien – LotR – Certainly gardeners are honoured

Por |octubre 26th, 2016|

‘… You are a new people
and a new world to me.
Are all your kin of like sort?

Your land must be
a realm of peace and content,
and there must gardeners
be in high honour.’

‘Not all is well there,’
said Frodo,
‘but certainly
gardeners are honoured.’

Rc – Tolkien – LotR – Pierced in the midst of a cry

Por |septiembre 13th, 2016|

He stood a moment as a man

who is pierced in the midst of a cry

by an arrow through the heart;

and then his face went deathly white;

and a cold fury rose in him,

so that all speech failed him for a while.

Rc – Tolkien – LotR – Dromunds, and ships of great draught with many oars

Por |septiembre 13th, 2016|

For Anduin,

from the bend at the Harlond,

so flowed that from the City

men could look down it lengthwise

for some leagues,

and the far-sighted could see

any ships that approached.

And looking thither they cried in dismay;

for black against the glittering stream

they beheld a fleet borne up on the wind:

dromunds, […]

But he did say much on his own account. Things were far from well, he would say. Business was not even fair, it was downright bad. ‘No one comes nigh Bree now from Outside,’ he said. ‘And the inside folks, they stay at home mostly and keep their doors barred. It all comes […]

Rc – Tolkien – LotR – Set out fair and square

Por |septiembre 8th, 2016|

The genealogical trees

at the end of

the Red Book of Westmarch are

a small book in themselves,

and all but Hobbits

would find them

exceedingly dull.

Hobbits delighted in such things,

if they were accurate:

they liked to have books filled

with things that they already knew,

set out fair and square

with no contradictions.

Rc – Tolkien – LotR – No living man may hinder me! – [SPOILER WARNING]

Por |septiembre 6th, 2016|

‘Hinder me? Thou fool.
No living man may hinder me!’

Then Merry heard of all sounds
in that hour the strangest.
It seemed that Dernhelm laughed,
and the clear voice was
like the ring of steel.

‘But no living man am I!
You look upon a woman.
Éowyn I am,
Éomund’s daughter.
You stand between me
and my lord and kin.
Begone, if you be not deathless!

For living […]
