    The Prophecy of Strider

    All that is gold does not glitter,
    Not all those who wander are lost;
    The old that is strong does not wither,
    Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
    From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
    A light from the shadows shall spring;
    Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
    The crownless again shall be king.

    Fireside Poem


    I sit beside the fire and think
    Of all that I have seen,
    Of meadow-flowers and butterflies
    In summers that have been.
    Of yellow leaves and gossamer
    In autumns that there were,
    With morning mist and silver sun
    And wind upon my hair.

    I sit beside the fire and think
    Of how the world will be
    When winter comes without a spring
    That I shall ever see.

    For still there are so many things
    That I have never seen.
    In every wood, in every spring
    There is a different green.

    I sit beside the fire and think
    Of people long ago,
    And people who will see a world
    That I shall never know.

    But all the while I sit and think
    Of the times there were before,
    I listen for returning feet
    And voices at the door.


    - composed by Bilbo Baggins

    Where is the midi relevance here? Or am I trapped in Middle Earth?

    Maybe you could set those poems to a tune.
    A Tolkein Tune Task.

    trapped. hopelessly trapped.

    Grinthorn wandered the internet,
    In search of midi files.
    He stumbled 'cross a wayward thread,
    Which brings here many smiles.

    This discussion board has fun in mind
    With midi involved too.
    So come on in and join the fun.
    Hope to see more of you.

    Posessed of precocious sagacity
    is our winsome Elf,
    And lyrically sonorous diction
    belies her ageless self.

    Gladsomely are we met each day
    with tidings steeped arborial,
    Her lilting gait, her songful voice,
    through centuries immemorial.

    With grateful hearts we count us blessed
    to share her bounties green,
    For fortune hath our lot thus set,
    and finds us thus serene!

    No competition, just people being creative - nothing wrong with that is there? Musicians are creative by nature.

    As for you question, take a look at the Feature store and you'll see that you have to buy the Name glow. The picture is dependant on how many times you post. The info for this is in the FAQ section
