A great poem even if no Frodo around. :) or should that be :( - in any case, well done, my dear jan!

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

So glad you enjoyed it, Antane. :)

ha ha~ Antane! But.....you know, even if the poem isn't demonstrably by (or about) Frodo....he IS always around. He has always existed and always shall. For he really is Love (besides being *a* love).

I admit to being quite Frodo-centric, though, and it is difficult for me, indeed, to even begin the task of writing with a voice that isn't his. And yet. Frodo did not accomplish anything (the Quest or anything else) without the aid of others. So it wouldn't be right, in speaking of his world, to only look at it through his eyes, with his voice. All of those other eyes, those other voices, they have so much to say.

Someday I hope you'll have time to visit my spot on the Scrapbook. There are many Frodo poems there that I think you'll enjoy. Even though Mecthild has combined many into her posts (and some poems written for her post exclusively), there are still many that have not been posted here. Like a parent, I am fond of them all and note their good points, and rub my thumb fondly, in an erasing motion, across their faults......

In any case....i doubt that Frodo and I shall ever cease conversing. So i believe that, with patience, you will certainly see more of him.

Yea! I have been to Scrapbook - I discovered it years ago, even before Mechtild's - but I have not read all your masterpieces there. One day! I think you did great here with Bilbo's voice. :)

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)
