Right well from what I've heard people are interested so lets go.
Farewell we call to hearth and Hall!
Though wind may blow and rain may fall,
We must away ere break of day
Far over wood and mountain tall.
To Rivendell, where Elves yet dwell
In glades beneath the misty fell,
Through moor and waste we ride in haste,
And whither then we cannot tell.
With foes ahead, behind us dread,
Beneath the sky shall be our bed,
Until at last our toil be passed,
Our journey done, our errand sped.
We must away! We must away!
We ride before the break of day.
Right so thats the first one the Farewell Song of
Merry and Pippin.
Now I could say that it's a poem which follows the
4 line structure and how each line ends in rhyme.
And how the first 2 lines all rhyme but the third and fourth stand alone but its not off putting. As you read it the words flow from your mouth with ease. I can imagine standing at the outer boundaries of the Shire and singing this song, and then just turning on and trudging down the road.
Looking at the poem, I think that the words
mild in well with each section "farewell we call to hearth and hall! Though wind may blow and rain may fall." I maybe overlooking or just thinking strange thoughts. Or
stating the obivious.
But the first part to me is very Hobbity or earthy"hearth and halls, wind and rain, wood and mountains" and the second part very elvish which it is "Rivendell where elves dwell and glades bneath misty fell". The third part is very
factul and it makes me think that they don't want to be
on this journey at all. And the final part rhymes.
So the floor is open please give your insight into what I have written and any other poems you want to look at. I haven't done this sort of thing for a few years now so I'm a bit rusty. So if theres a few things which I babble about thats life but let me none the less.
So lets go
When history looks down its weird vestigial stump of a nose at us, it'll have a lot of very shitty things to say.
