This is a poem I wrote a few years ago with my English tutor Mr. P Raitar’s help as an English assignment.
It is based on The Battle of Helm’s Deep.
The Wave of Doom
A sea of black sets at these walls
and their howls pierce our courage.
My men tremble like ravens in a storm
their hearts beating wildly like the drums of doom.
With skin as thick as tree bark
and fangs that lust for men’s flesh
these dark demons groan and growl
and torture the strength of our souls.
When the arrow sings in flight
and the sword clashes
blood will flow
staining the ground crimson.
We might stand
more surely we will fall.
The warriors of Helm’s Deep hear the battle call.
