1. Lady of Sunlight

A/N: Some really odd poetry for the HASA challenge “How do I love thee”. Pardon me for this paltry answer to this great challenge. Features a couplet and a free verse poem

“The glades of Ithilien so wild yet so fair
Pale beside my lady with golden hair”

“Can it be possible
That it is just a dream
That when I open my eyes
The world has gone gray?

Éowyn, as we lie in silence
I wonder how it can be so
That a healer such as you
Can never really be tamed

As you murmur my name in the night
Doubt so ancient sometimes emerges
From the dark lair in which it hides
Could it be you were thinking of another?

But yet as you smile, I realize
That such a thing cannot be so
When I wake beside you at dawn
My mind confirms what my heart knows

That in loving you, I have shown you the joy
That lay within you, concealed by a cold prison
Yet as you return my love, you have given me
Much more than a simple promise

Shield-maiden, healer, so fair, of gold and white
My love, my lady of sunlight
I will never forget the sweet truth you spoke
I will never forget you love me
