(The fathers of Men meet Finrod Felagund)

The night swooped down on dark wings of cold dread
with nightmares circling the flames - the faint light

can't chase away the memories and fright

that lurk in mind and in lands that we fled.

Towards the sunset our journey led,
but within us we still carried the night

and to the past we don't turn our sight,
but don't dare to hope for future ahead.


Suddenly nightmare turned to pleasant dream

of distant land with shores from pure white sand
as waves of song carry us like clear stream

and strings of harp are touched by gentle hand.


And when dawn blushes with the first sunbeam
with hope in heart facing the west we stand.

A sonnet.
Written for Blackwell's Bookshop Middle-earth poetry contest. There wasn't much time to write it and it's not as good as I would like, so no wonder it didn't win :)

I really like the line: "Suddenly nightmare turned to pleasant dream", - this is a very promising understanding of the metaphysics of illusions! Perfect!
