Elves and the Doom of Men (poem)

A poem about the wise among the elves, and those mere mortals who are fortunate enough to cross their paths Smile


Elves and the Doom of Men
I stand and stare at you

An imposing figure

Tall and ethereal

Secure and confident

To you, I am but a fledgling

Clumsy, foolish

New to this world

Lacking in understanding

You are a deep fount of knowledge

A vassal of wisdom

Oh, to have your years

To call my own

To have your knowledge

To which I can glean

For knowledge I seek

But also wisdom

What is wisdom

Save for experience?

What is knowledge

Save for age?

Yet I have neither age

Nor experience

What I do have is limited

My experience is lacking

And yet I thirst

Like a man in the desert

Longing for the wisdom

For the time I have left.



My writing and novels:

My Hobbit Fanfiction

My historical novel print and kindle version

My historical novels ebook version compatible with all ereaders

You can also find my novel at most major book retailers online (and for those outside the US who prefer a print book, you can find the print version at Book Depository). Search "Amazing Grace Amanda Longpre'" to find it.

Happy reading everyone!
