Another set of pics and a poem to rend the heart. The pity Frodo so freely gave Gollum is what we feel for *him*, and we rejoice that the price he paid was not, in the end, as high as Smeagol's.

Thank you, Shirebound. I suppose you are right, that the courteousness, the grace, the mercy that Frodo showed others -- especially Gollum -- only made those who were his friends (in the text, or its readers) love him and esteem him the more.

The older I get the more I can appreciate the gift he was given, being able to sail West before he actually had to die (no doubt rather miserably) in the Shire.
