The Last Ship

An Elven messenger arrived,
Cloaked by dark moon.
Extending an invitation
To the last ring-bearer.

The seed was planted.

He wandered the Shire -
Hobbiton, Brandy Hall, Stock and Bywater,
Ending at the Party Tree.
Revisiting memories.

The seed took root.

He watched his children's children
His sons gardened; daughters laughed and sang.
He journeyed to Bree, met friends,
An innkeeper, a dwarf, and a wood elf.

The seed sprouted.

Finally, to Elanor he traveled
His fair one, named by Frodo.
At tower's top they gazed West together
Embraced, wept, and separated at dawn

Círdan's White Ship awaited Samwise Gamgee.
