    Length does not determine how good a poem is. This is one of my personal favorites. (Report) Reply

    Long live Lothlorien and the glory of Aragorn the 1st! ! ! Undoubtly, THE most horrifying prophecy in fiction...and in reality perhaps. Tolkien's imagination=the weapon against logic! (Report) Reply

    loved this, but how can you comment on one of his shortest poems and ignore all the rest? the trilogy and all books by him are the best (Report) Reply
