My first published review! Thanks Nancylea.

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.

Thanks Linda. I was very nervous posting it.

"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.

Oooooo. I like it!
Aug. 13th, 2008 07:04 am (UTC)
From you that means a lot - thank you.
Aug. 12th, 2008 02:18 am (UTC)
Interesting! I hope you try some more of these!

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.
Aug. 12th, 2008 05:26 pm (UTC)
Cool! I liked this!
Aug. 13th, 2008 07:13 am (UTC)
Thank you very much.

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.

Sorry Pearl, I missed that you had reviewed this. A much belated thanks.

A difficult PoV, but well done!

I am so sorry that I missed your much appreciated review. Thank you so much.

I missed this one - very clever and well-written; and my inner Faramirist is pleased that his renounciation was mentioned.
Dec. 31st, 2009 07:54 pm (UTC)
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.
