Of Songs and Heroes – Part I
“I don’t know many songs,” Boromir responded, not entirely truthful. He did know many songs, just not ones he deemed appropriate for the company present.
“Just one,” Pippin urged.
Boromir shrugged, smiling, “I am a soldier, Master Pippin, not a poet. Now, my brother Faramir…”
“Soldiers don’t sing?” Merry asked Aragorn, confused, for he’d heard Aragorn sing.
“They do,” Boromir amended, “Just not of normal things. They sing of heroes and – oh, all right. Just one then.”
He looked around at the interested group gathered around him. Aragorn and the hobbits nodded encouragingly.
“It’s called Captain Thorongil and the Corsairs.”
