I am completely overwhelmed by Jan’s poem. The screencaps are well chosen. Thank you both for this moving entry.

The following gave such a feeling of serenity, I imagine that this is exactly how Frodo will choose to fall into his final sleep in Tol Eressea.

It is good to lie still,

without fear.

It is good to close my eyes to that which approaches,
good to dreme upon green hills and golden harvests,

silver stars and Spring-blue skies.

*gets all weepy with you*

On a lighter note: Did you notice that Gollum is a nail-biter too? (no pun intended btw)

Yeah, it's a wonderful poem, Este, even for jan-u-wine. The passage you quoted -- well, the whole thing is full of quotable moments.

No, it never really registered with me that Gollum's nails are bitten-down, but they sure are! There are more close-ups of that moment, of course, but I am saving them for when I ever post the full Sammath Naur caps.

Yes, I went ahead and made caps of the whole scene, since I was working on the caps for Jan's poem. Capping the Sammath Naur was a task I'd been putting off because there are such a lot. Every minute of film on screen would require its own post! Those caps are made from the fullscreen version, though, not the widescreen like the caps above. The fullscreen version has the sides cut off, but it's great if you want just one person in close-up.
