3. Elrond's Terza Rima Sonnet
Was it me? Did I make the wrong choice?
Too late did she meet my foster son.
She won't listen to my voice.
I should be glad she's made her own way -
At her decision I can't rejoice.
I had my chance and my say,
I wanted her to stay at my side.
For my ancestors I must now pay.
And the thing I can't abide:
So dark and empty will be my home,
For she will be my foster son's bride
and my daughter will be gone.
I wonder: what I have done?
