23. Denethor's Dream

Author's note:
Based on "Pilate's Dream," from Jesus Christ Superstar, lyrics by Tim Rice, music by Andrew Lloyd Webber.


I dreamed I met a kingly stranger
A most impressive man
He had a look
I'd never seen before
His face it promised war

I asked him
What he planned to do next
What might be his plan
I asked again
He turned his back on me
To look at the White Tree

And next the lands were full
Of Orcs, and fighting men
Who followed this dark man
They marched away and then
The Orcs vanished again

Then I saw all Gondor's millions
Calling for this man
Himself the king of Gondor to proclaim
And then I saw just flame
