Mt. Doom blows up

For the Anniversary of the Fall of Barad-dûr ~ ‘Upon the Ending of an Age’ by jan-u-wine.

Jan-u-wine has been inspired to write a new piece to commemorate this March 25, a poem written from the point of view of the Great Eagles as they come to rescue Frodo and Sam, lying in the midst of fiery ruin, spent, their deaths imminent. I can’t describe the mood of this piece any more than I can describe the inner life of an eagle, Jan can and does, and it is unforgettable. I am borne up with Meneldor, Gwaihir and Landroval when I read this. The poem has wings, the wings of narrative imagination.
