Story Summary

Poem on Beregond, Bergil, and ‘Courage under fire’ including an essay on Tolkien's view on Middle Earth faith.
This poem was written after a HA-discussion with Dwimordene about ‘Courage under Fire’ with respect to Aristotle’s notion of a 'fine death in war'. I thank Dwimordene for the permission to use in the notes some of her words.
As a prayer it is entered into the HASA challenge I'm a believer
