PartIV Chapter 3
The Light, Quest Day 11
As others woke on the eleventh Day
They found a thick mist had engulfed The Light
They appeared, dazed and in some disarray,
Legolas was there to explain their plight
Gandalf, Aragorn, Éowyn, had erewhile gone
The Light was in danger of being breached
And the mist shielding them was dispersing,
Each received a parchment with details drawn
So safely their different worlds could be reached
For both time and space would need traversing.
Each read Gandalf’s separate directions
To return to their future existence,
But with no memory of connections
To each other and The Light’s resistance
Of all Dark’s domain and evil misdeeds,
This they understood, but they felt dismay
For it meant a parting once more of friends,
But Gandalf pledged all, if Light’s plan succeeds
They would be recalled on the thirteenth day
If not, their lives would follow other ends.
For now, with Sauron’s increasing dire threat
None could be protected within The Light
So with joy that they had once again met
Eight beings embraced, mindful of the might
That three of their own would soon need to face
And on which Light’s very existence laid.
Quietly at each’s allotted hour
They slipped away into the tides of space
To those world’s and time’s divergent parade
Hidden and safe from Sauron’s baneful power.
