Contronym - Bolt: Ballad of Luthien's Talents

Title: Ballad of Luthien's Talents
Author: Himring
Characters: Luthien
Rating: PG
Warnings: none
Book/Source: Silmarillion
Disclaimer: It's all Tolkien, I just bolted as many senses of "bolt" onto it as a drabble would hold!

Who wove a shadow cloak so potent no other bolt of cloth woven by hand could match it? Luthien!
Who raised her voice in song, breaking the bolt of every prison door when werewolves fallen lay at her feet? Luthien!
Who was the target of the ill-famed bolt from Curufin’s bow and lived despite his wrath? Luthien!
Whose bride-price did the hound of hell bolt down and carry raging in his belly to Doriath, bolting in madness from Angband’s gates? Luthien!
Like a bolt out of the blue, Luthien, the woman no one had expected, left all thunder-bolt-struck! Ah, Luthien!
