Consider Phlebas (Boromir)

Poetic Forms: Free Verse
Alternate Viewpoint: The Uruk-Hai


Consider Phlebas

After the battle,
After the blood and the iron,
After the fall and the defeat
After the confession (and the absolution),
Comes the voyage home.

The river took me.
Little wooden coffin-boat let slip;
Jetsam bobbing on the water.

Farewell, friends! Farewell, arms!
My time is past.
The water holds me now and soon the sea.
Dreams of sunlit lands wash over me
And this world of war recedes.

I am blessed and beloved.
I am at peace at last.
I am going soon; I am leaving.
I am passing down the river.
I am passing through my brotherís dreams.
