Mary Grace’s poem…

Legolas! What do your elf-eyes see?
I see green valleys and bold blond riders
Who ride like the wind and in their eyes is fire
A stream trickles down from the mountain of snow
A golden palace! It is there we must go.
Legolas! What do your elf-eyes see?
I see smoke rising from battles afar
Which black like the night covers the stars
Veils all hope and slackens those standing tall
I see war in Rohan, destruction upon all.
