Brave and Bold
    July 19, 2010
    While playing Lord of the Rings Online:
    "Some time ago we passed into the lands of Eregion and from there our fates led us to the grim paths into Moria, the great delving of the dwarves. Though the dwarves have returned the caverns of Moria are no welcoming place. In awe we march through the dank and dark dangers of these once magnificent halls ever ready to face the evil that lurks in each shadow. So while we marched in misery, to calm my nerves and still my mind  I quietly recited this little poem under my breath.
    "If you find yourself in the dark and need a little something to bolster your heart please do feel free to try my rhyme.
    "May all your roads through the darkness be short ones."
