Oh dear! Your post touched me to tears! The beauty of this angelic little creature seems not to be of this world. To see him covered with all the dirt, almost broken and despaired gives me this certain sort of pain in the stomach. But that all may be bearable, just this poem finally broke my heart! What a wonderful sad and touching piece. Well, in such moments I have always to tell myself "Everything will be good! Everything will be good! Everything will be good!" like a Mantra. If it will help? It never helped so far, but maybe I'll get once used to the picture of this wonderful poor gentle soul being almost broken and his beloved friend in sorrow and fear nearly despaired too. One will never know.
In fact, they both will find their way out and they'll get home again, but to which price! In the end they have the eternity on a sunny island, but that's not the Shire, not their beloved home!

Thank you so much for your lovely post and for those great pictures!

Thank you, Aredhelebenesse. And thanks for your heartfelt post. This Frodo really does bring all that out, doesn't he? When I become too sad, I think of him waking up in the Houses of Healing (or wherever he's supposed to be in the film version), bathed in golden-white light that almost looks a healing agent in itself, and seeing him wake up in disoriented, amazed joy.
