My, yes, that was quite creepy. I don't doubt that Wormtongue had such thoughts and wishes toward Eowyn, but I'm quite glad he never got to carry them out.

This was hauntingly beautiful. And so Grima! I can see why Eowyn would be none-too-happy to attract his attentions.

I'm going to confess right now before saying anything else that this poem gave me the willies. When I first read it last year, I actually had to leave the room because I feltÂ…dirty. That's a compliment to Dwimordene's writing, though somewhat backhanded, I suppose. In any case, I don't want to get any closer to Wormtongue than this. His obsession with Eowyn gave me chills, his need to hurt and teach her made me wince, and I'm not even going to touch on the idea of the sword as a phallic symbol. I'll get the willies all over again. A very good poem, but it creeps me out every time I read it.
