Boromir's Riddle


Seek for the Sword that was broken:

In Imladris it dwells;

There shall be counsels taken

Stronger than Morgul-spells.

There shall be shown a token

That Doom is near at hand,

For Isuldur's Bane shall waken,

And the Halfling forth shall stand.


~As heard by Boromir in a dream (The Fellowship of the Ring - Book 2, Ch. 2 "The Council of Elrond")
