You are welcome, Estë. (I love it when you sign your posts, Estë, because then I can copy-and-paste your name, Estë, with the correct accent, Estë.)

That poem really did express it more than well. I think she takes it where it would go if he were book Frodo, but it's not clear to me that film Frodo has considered the final implications of his pleasure in touching, gazing at and basically doting upon the Ring.

That is, her final line for Frodo, "I / will / not/ say / I love / you", is what I would have liked to get a sense of in the scene, but until I read her poem, I didn't. I just saw him thinking, "Ring...dear, loveliest Ring....so utterly desireable..." then, "Oh, SH*T! He almost saw me!"

For me, Jan's poem greatly improved and deepened my experience and appreciation of that scene. Maybe that sense was there in EW's performance, but I had never seen it.
