Sauron defeated...and yet...


Sauron defeated…and yet…

What of this Middle Earth we claim as home

Where fires burn where no dragons roam.

Where coasts are drowned as surely as Westernesse

And the Wise have sailed; sailed to the West.

Orcs breed, but not in Misty Mountains cold;

In City Canyons built on gold;

In Empty places where fear and hate

Are allowed to stew and percolate.

Dark Lords reign in Corporate Towers

And promise pain to those that cower

Among the wreckage of Middle Earth

That greed and corruption now devours.

For Men above all desire Power.

  4. I have been admiring your work for a small bit of time but I have spent a lot of time here. I keep smiling. I am going to attempt to make a couple of your lovely dolls and the gifts you give and hope my arthritis from my brittle bone disease works with me as I have not crocheted in 40 years-am 60 now.

    Too much time on my hands now to keep idle hands and mind. Will donate some if I can make and make a boy doll for my young 2 year old grandson.

    This is the first tut I have read of yours and of course you did not disappoint. I smile and thank you in a soft voice and While asking again "Will you please be my neighbor?"

    Enough pictures and you tell me what to do step by step, omitting nothing.

    Last but certainly not least is the first poem I read by you and the visions of times long past and some dreams engulfed my mind. Amazing with your words. <3
    I have no way to thank you but to say, "Thank you Kindly Beth, for sharing you" ~

    1. Thank you for your lovely words. I am delighted that you enjoy my patterns...and my poetic musings. Blessings.

  5. Very apt for these days.

    1. Yes, I am afraid so. And I don't see it changing any time soon.
