Author's Notes: The essence of found poetry is that you can find poetry anywhere! A Found Poem is a type of poetry created by taking words, phrases from a significant passage and reframing them as poetry by making changes in spacing and/or lines (and consequently meaning), or by altering the text. In this case, I have edited the original so that I have several sections of ten lines each, with each line being no longer than 8 words. The words are left in the same order, but the sequence of the phrases can be changed and repeated. I added no words of my own, using words only found in the text; though words cannot be added, they can be eliminated. The end result is poetry I "found" in Peregrin Ionad's piece written in honor of Boromir.
Summary: A found poem in which Aragorn mourns the passing of Boromir.
