you captured Amroth's despair nicely here. Poor bloke! I was genuinely moved as he described the vibrancy of the living forest while his own life ebbed away.

Author's Response: Thank you for enjoying, reading, and of course, reviewing! =) I am glad you enjoyed it. It was a somewhat hard piece for me to write, trying to slip into the mind of one who just lost his love, glad you liked it =)
Tragedy and love. They seem like opposites but they go together so well. A very nice poem about two Elves we don't read much of. Poetry is the one thing I wish I could do but unfortunately, it is not within me. This is a nice change. Good job.
Author's Response: Thank you so much =)I read The Song of Nimrodel this week, and I was really inspired to write something about the two of them.
My life is broken beyond compare
I shall see her again in Mandos
I shall hold her in my arms,
My bloodstained arms.
It seems Elves loved deeply and eternally. Of course Amroth would not want to live without his love. I'm sure she felt the same way. Perhaps she dispaired of ever seeing him again and ended her life also.
A beautiful moving poem about two of my favorite subjects, Elves and love. Thank you Nessa. I enjoyed it very much!
Author's Response: I have been doing some research on elves, and I learned that they only had one true love all their lives, and then I read The Song of Nimrodel and was inspired. I am very glad that you enjoyed it, especially it being dedicated to you and all =)
