Aragorn Poetry Writing Challenge

Challenge Details

As Beren looked into her eyes
Within the shadows of her hair,
The trembling starlight of the skies
He saw there mirrored shimmering.
Tinuviel the elven-fair,
Immortal maiden elven-wise,
About him cast her shadowy hair
And arms like silver glimmering.


So Aragorn sang when he first met Arwen. Obviously, the man knew his love poetry and tragic lays.

But was he a poet himself? Did he keep a small journal squirreled away in his pack, writing reams of poetry in secret?

Is anyone willing to discover his writings?

Our beloved Ranger probably wrote lots of angsty poetry declaring his love for Arwen as a lovestruck boy. Maybe Thorongil wrote poetry dedicated to the White City, or to Finduilas. He could even have written about Denethor being a prat. Or there could be poetry from a king to his queen, or of the love he had for his children.

Any style of poetry, and any length: just show us some verse penned by Aragorn at any point in his life!
