19 (who?)
The light of Sun, the light of Moon

Glowed brightly in the blade

The seven stars from Varda's sky

Whose shine should never fade

The darkness fell with fiery gaze

Upon the shadowed land

But Sword and Spear in alliance

Against its evil stand

The broken sword, the shattered light

Of Sun, and Stars, and Moon

Yet still it has the strength to cut

The thread of evil doom

The empty throne, the tombs of kings

The future becomes past

And like a line in secrecy:

The shards covered by dust

The shadows gather, evil gloom:

The darkness stirs again,

Over the land, menacing cloud,

Dread returns to its den

But hand will come to wield the sword

Of one with the heart true,

And with the Flame of ancient West

The blade will flare anew!
Written for B2MeM [link]

Challenge (Himring): En garde! This challenge is all about weapons and weaponry. Write a story about a character's chosen weapon, or learning how to use a weapon. Is the character a skilled fighter, or is learning to wield a weapon a bit of a struggle for him or her?

Narsil: nar - "fire", thil -"white light" referring to the Sun and Moon

Andúril: "Flame of the West"

...on its blade was traced a device of seven stars set between the crescent Moon and the rayed Sun, and about them was written many runes... Very bright was that sword when it was made whole again; the light of the sun shone redly in it, and the light of the moon shone cold, and its edge was hard and keen.

(J. R. R. Tolkien: The Fellowship of the Ring)

Well written, and very flowing. Reminds me of Tolkiens own writing. Beautiful, and true :)

And let it flare... for many ages =) Though I know that you don't belong to those mortals who seek immortality ;) But I'd give you that immortality... if you wished!

P.S. Have I told you that it's incredibly beautiful or have I just thought to say?

Thank you for the offer, but it would be boring in the long-time measure ;)

Maybe you thought loudly :D Thank you very much! :)

All right =) (for both cases) But anyway it's better to be able to live long then to be limited from the beginning!
