Call of the Wild

He is a man made for leather, not silk.

With tawny hair and leonine grace he makes the nobles of Gondor seem dull as grackles and harmless as coneys. Flushed with victory and acclaim, he fills the room with energy, proud and restless as a great beast.

Like calls to like. He turns, curious, as if feeling the heat of my gaze; I stand stock-still as he approaches. There are those who will fault me for my boldness, but I will be his, and he will be mine; glory calls us in the echo of a faraway battle-horn.

Author's Note: "Thengel, son of Fengel, left Rohan when he came to manhood and lived long in Gondor, and won honour in the service of Turgon. He took no wife until late, but in 2943 he wedded Morwen of Lossarnach in Gondor, though she was seventeen years the younger. She bore him three children in Gondor of whom Théooden, the second, was his only son." The Return of the King, Appendix A, "The Kings of the Mark"

ETA: Thengel's response is here.
