The bookshelf of Fantasy

The pines of Dor-Lomin

The Baron Harkonnen

Lothlorien’s swan ship of gold

the shining Silmaril

A ride on a barrel

The sandworms of Dune to behold

the hero Estraven

And Poe’s eerie raven

The treasures of Smaug were untold

When Brandin was scolded

Isolla exploded

And they stood ’til her body was cold

Saruman’s tower

And Sauron’s great power

And Bombadil, oldest of old

The Nephredil flower

The hobbits’ great hour

And the soul that poor Sméagol had sold

The Eloi and Morlocks

The wizards and warlocks

Fair Luthien, Beren the Bold

And Moria’s door

And the Priest-Kings of Gor

And the stories that Tolkien told

Feanor’s Folly

The catapults’ volley

The Fellowship’s climb in the cold

And Yoda’s finale

The Jedis’ last rally

(These stories have yet to be told)
