[Thoughts in Haiku] The Return of the King

Hazy’s note: Undercover Bookworm just turned 1 year old this September! Last weekend, it was… and I forgot! 😆 Weatherly and I thank you, dear readers and followers, for your continued support and for reading our posts!  Again, we thank YOU!  ❤

I will try my best to start doing haiku posts again.  And as a token of my gratitude, here’s the long awaited conclusion to The Lord of the Rings haiku trilogy. 

Book Summary and Thoughts in Haiku on: The Return of the King (The Lord of the Rings Vol. 3) by J.R.R. Tolkien

Denethor, I loathe
Loves first son more’n second son
Makes Faramir sad

Faramir, to war
Comes home wounded, *almost* dead
Father thinks son’s dead

Funeral pyre built
To burn dad and son
Denethor, you’re nuts!

[Thoughts in Haiku] The Two Towers

Boromir is gone
Treebeard and the Ent council

[Thoughts in Haiku] The Tell-Tale Heart


All posts this week will be related to Halloween (not much, really, since I only post something twice or thrice a week 😀 ). Something creepy, something chilling, or something supernatural, perhaps?

And so it begins…

[Thoughts in Haiku] Emma

Book Thoughts and Summary in Haiku on: Emma by Jane Austen

Emma, matchmaker
That’s what she attempts to be
Disaster ensues

Dear Mr. Knightley,
Kind and honest gentleman
Girl you love, lucky!

Words exchanged, harsh truth
Assumptions, misconceptions,
then epiphany

“Epiphany” is one of my favorite words… and I just had to insert it here somewhere. 😀

Also, adding in a new section…

Quick Quotable Quotes

  • “I do not know whether it ought to be so, but certainly silly things do cease to be silly if they are done by sensible people in an impudent way.”  – Emma
  • “There are people, who the more you do for them, the less they will do for themselves.” – Emma
  • “Men of sense, whatever you may choose to say, do not want silly wives.” – Mr. Knightley
  • “You must be the best judge of your own happiness.” – Emma
  • “Vanity working on a weak head, produces every sort of mischief.” – Mr. Knightley
  • “I cannot make speeches, Emma . . . If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about it more. But you know what I am. You hear nothing but truth from me.” – Mr. Knightley
  • Seldom, very seldom, does complete truth belong to any human disclosure; seldom can it happen that something is not a little disguised or a little mistaken . . .
