Author's Chapter Notes:



I believe this is the first time that I've been actually inspired by the location of the day!   March 26 Challenge:
"Pride is still aiming at the best houses: Men would be angels, angels would be gods. Aspiring to be gods, if angels fell; aspiring to be angels men rebel."
--Alexander Pope

The Path of Wisdom

Power to order and do all things as I will,
To lay my wisdom before all who will see
I alone can lead this world to safety;
I alone bring order out of chaos,
and so I hide my thoughts,
and I bide my time.
I will be thanked
some day soon.
But not

I see
it upon me:
the Dark Lord's eye
so I bide my time.
My thoughts are my own.
I will make my own wisdom.
Fools hope the dark can be defied
by light, by hope and by courage alone.
But we need to use the dark's own weapon,
power to order and do all things as I will.  

(Author's Note: Perhaps part of why Saruman became so destructive was because of his lengthy efforts to dissemble and hide his thoughts from Sauron.)
