1. Faithful Sam

The Ring of Power was destroyed
It was thrown into the void
By Frodo Baggins long ago
His gardener Sam helped him to let go

Faithful Sam always stayed by his side
Even though he nearly died
When Frodo wanted to go alone
To Orodruin where nothing shone

Sam wouldn't let him
He ran after the boat
Though he couldn't swim
Or even float

So together the two journeyed to Mordor
Where they thought they would pass into tales of yore
But somehow Sam and Frodo made it through
They were rescued by eagles that flew out of the blue

Though in the end Sam and Frodo parted
And it was a while before Sam departed,
Nothing could sever such a strong tie
As the one Sam and Frodo could never deny

AN: I made this poem blue because traditionally blue is the color of loyalty and friendship

Hi, Eloqin,

Nice poem. (I especially liked the one line about 'before Sam departed'.)
