The Would-Be Mariner by Zdenka

Author: Zdenka
Title: The Would-Be Mariner
Rating: G
Theme: “Laugh!” (humorous poetry)
Elements: precarious/vicarious
Author's Notes: Written in the meter of “Eärendil was a mariner” from The Fellowship of the Ring (with a certain amount of affectionate parody). I imagine this as the sort of story that was told in the Shire to discourage hobbits from seeking Adventures.
Summary: A young hobbit attempts to go to sea, with unfortunate results.
Word Count: 213
