Thirty Moments of the Ring!



Sauron forged me.
Runes encircle me.
The Firstborn felt me…………

The Alliance defied me.
Sauron was maimed for me.
Elendil’s weregild was paid by me.
Isildur was betrayed by me…….

Déagol found me.
Sméagol killed for me.
Sméagol/Gollum retreated into the dark with me………

Gollum lost me.
Bilbo chanced upon me……

Bilbo relinquished me.
Gandalf seized and released me.
Frodo accepted me.
Mithrandir refused me…….

The Council saw me.
Boromir coveted me.

Galadriel rejected me.

The Steward’s Heir tried to take me.

Aragorn repudiated me.

Faramir renounced me.

Samwise bore me.

Frodo demanded me.

The Ring Bearer claimed me.


Gollum bit and danced for me.

Gollum fell
with me.

Gollum supported me.

Lava cradles me.

Red, purple & yellow fire melts me…………….

A very nice poem, my dear! It's not easy doing the POV of an inanimate object, but you did just fine!

Thanks Dreamflower. This just came to me. I didn't think of it as a poem.

"Gollum... danced for me."

That's a great turn of phrase. These are interesting moments in the life of the Ring.

I toyed with using 'with' instead of 'for'. I could have written a few more moments but needed to fit in my number somehow so for a few I doubled up the actions.

I have been a reviewer for quite a long time now. A couple of people have egged me on to write something. This is what came out! We shall have to wait and see if this is my one creative moment.

Ah, so wonderful to see it posted, Harrowcat! So well done. Indeed, Gollum danced with It--perhaps the only joy It ever engendered--just before both were destroyed! A gem of a story.

Aw - thank you so much Larner. And thank you too for all the help and encouragement. You and shirebound both liked my own favourite phrase. A rather bitter and fleeting joy. That last bit was inspired by the scene in the film and the commentary about it on on extended DVD.

I missed this one - very clever and well-written; and my inner Faramirist is pleased that his renounciation was mentioned.

Thanks for both your reviews Raksha. I couldn't miss out Faramir.
I have a thought in the back of my mind to compose something about the people who resist the lure to take the Ring - Faramir being a prime example. But it has been fermenting a long time and I doubt it will ever be actually written.
