Amon Hen

Great men of old raised up this throne, seeking far-sight from a seat of stone.

Did they see the line of kings erode as rocks under Rauros? See the rule of stewards falter and fail?

He who fell here yearned ever for his white city, yet his vision was clouded and he no longer knew his way.

If he had gained this seat would the scales have fallen from his eyes?

The Tower of Guard shall ever northward gaze, yet still its finest son does not return.

And all the tears of all the kings can never bring him home.
