Being the often forgetful person that I am, I forgot to schedule the last three posts to publish automatically. Oh, well. Here we go!
On the 3rd day before Christmas, Hazy (and Weatherly) recommend:
BOOK – The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien
My favorite book in the trilogy. Mostly because Eowyn was awesome. And of course, good prevailed over evil.
- “What do you fear, lady?” Aragorn asked.
“A cage,” Éowyn said. “To stay behind bars, until use and old age accept them, and all chance of doing great deeds is gone beyond recall or desire.”
- “I wished to be loved by another,” Éowyn answered. “But I desire no man’s pity.”
- “Do not throw your life away rashly or in bitterness.” – Gandalf [to Faramir]
SONG – “Silent Night” by Pentatonix
Beautiful arrangement. Seriously. My favorite part starts around the 1:57 mark. 🙂
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!
Book Summary and Thoughts in Haiku on: The Two Towers (The Lord of the Rings Vol. 2) by J.R.R. Tolkien
Boromir is gone
Treebeard and the Ent council
To fight Saruman
Riders of Rohan
Defeat icky, scary orcs
Meet man, dwarf and, elf
Wait, did you see that?
Aragorn saw an old man
Oh, hey! It’s Gandalf!
Book Summary and Thoughts in Haiku on: The Fellowship of the Ring (The Lord of the Rings Vol. 1) by J.R.R. Tolkien
Bilbo left a ring
To Frodo Baggins, his heir
Ring, must keep secret
Gandalf reveals Ring
Turns bearer corrupt, evil
Forged by the Dark Lord
