92. 2015 April Challenge: Lyrical Love, Short form by Rhapsody

[ - ]

The 2015 April Challenge had the theme "Lyrical Love". The twist was that it could be any sort of love except romantic love. It can be love for a family member, a friend, an object, a place or an idea or anything else--but not for a romantic relationship! In honor of the fact that April is National Poetry Month, we asked the participants to try their hand at a short poem. No form could be longer than 15 lines, and if possible shorter.

A Love Song to Middle-Earth in Spring by Himring

Rated G
[Reviews - 0]
Table of Contents

A song that could have been sung by anyone after the first rising of the Sun, really-- but maybe particularly by Beren himself, of whose song this is an adaptation, or by Aragorn, since he seems to have liked the Lay of Leithian, from which Beren's song is taken?
