lacking a good friend, loyal company, and spontaneous poetry in your life? not fond of horses or being blindfolded in the woods? in love with mountains and fire-lit halls beneath the earth? if you checked yes to any of the above, give this a LIKE – or, better yet, REBLOG to help spread the word about the wonders ( and sass, and beards ) of dwarves !
[ ind. gimli The Lord of the Rings] [ written by miri] [book- and movie-based]
This song, Use Well the Days, was written for the ROTK end credits. You won’t find it anywhere in the soundtrack- It was cut after Into the West took its place. (this recording may not be the “final draft” of the song, either.) Just like Into the West, it was composed by Howard Shore and sung by Annie Lennox, with lyrics by Fran Walsh.
Use Well the Days is about Frodo bidding his final farewell to Sam…. thanking him, blessing him, and hoping the rest of his life in Middle Earth will be happy and peaceful.
