Lord of the Rings 1 by Caissa Lord of the Rings 1 by Caissa
Here we got the poem that was composed for Aragorn in Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings".

I thought it had to go together with a picture of something rising, just as Aragorn rises from a ranger to a king, so I decided to take this wallpaper of the rising moon in the wilderness. It actually has been in my "Active Desktop" folder for ages and I nearly had forgotten about it... so I don't know who created it, it was a free download somewhere sometime.
The moon is a very strong symbol for me. It's mystic, a bit romantic, unreachable and yet very close, strong, but mild - and these are characteristics that fit my image of Aragorn quite well.

Besides, the moon and the evening star (Arwen, of course ;) ) go together much better than the evening star and the sun, don't they? *gg*

Fonts: DS Note for the capital A and F, Tolkien for the text (yeahhhhhhh XD, tis is REALLY the font's name...) and good old Times New Roman fot the author's name

It makes a lot of sense as elves love the night and stars and Tilion's orb, so Aragorn shares the love he was raised around.

this is really cool, but when the moon is behind the writing you should have changed the colour of the writing. other that that it's nice.

It's one of my favourite poems of all tie (especially the first part). I'm a huge Lord of the Rings-geek as well. I agree with the characteristics of the moon and Aragorn. It's very nicely done =)
