This is the first poem that actually made me shed real tears. I think cause it's the only one I let fully in.
Not sure why.
Maybe because Sam's pain is so reachable to me. I've been the one left behind and picking up the pieces lots of times. Frodo has gone. What he sees and feels now I can only guess at and hope.

Yeah, Taerie, I know. I have perhaps already bored you with this before, but all during my early readings of LotR, I only identified with Sam, always *crushed to dust* by Frodo's departure. It was only when I read the book in more recent readings, twenty years later, that I began to be able to identify with Frodo when I read. Now I am able to appreciate the positive side of his sailing. But not then. When I read this Sam poem, it hits me all over again. But I confess I think I get the most misty just because I think the poem is so darned good. Art always make me cry when it really works.
