Gosh! I love this scene in both book and film.

Jan’s poem goes straight to my heart.



This
oh, this
I cannot bear:

the still body
a mere breath,

a step
from mine,

ragged hands....

feet bound by red-tinged
linen.

My eyes take account
of every hurt,

every breath that
struggles
there.


This reminds me that part of Frodo’s guilt stemmed from what Sam had suffered.

*Estë gets very weepy and decides to cheer herself up by treating herself to another long session of cap-gazing*

You are welcome, Estë! Yes, for me too it was this poem that reminded me of how Frodo would probably have felt responsible for Sam's suffering--even though Gandalf had ok'd Sam's coming, and even though Sam had absolutely insisted.
