And thanks to everyone else who wrote Weird Norse Poems! This was really a learning experience for me, both in terms of learning this new form, but also how we all learned something about it together while attempting to write. 'Learning Communities' are a hot new concept now in higher education, but I think we've got the best example of it here.
for your King shall come again,
and he shall dwell among you
all the days of your life.

I agree with Merry that we've all learnt something about the poetry that Tolkien loved through having a go at this. And it's been great fun. Those old Norse blokes knew a thing or two about entertaining listeners with words and images, didn't they?

CONGRATULATIONS to marbretherese for her winning entry -- just a fantastic poem! And CONGRATULATIONS to everyone who took a stab at this truly interesting poetic form. All of the entries were wonderful, and it was really hard to choose just one to support with a vote.
