By Walt Whitman. The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,. While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring;.
But O heart! O the bleeding drops of red,. Where on the deck my Captain lies,. Fallen cold and dead. Rise up—for you the flag is flung—for you the bugle trills,.
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning;. Here Captain! This arm beneath your head! It is some dream that on the deck,.
My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still,. My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will,. From fearful trip the victor ship comes in with object won;.
Hethlin, Mablung and Lorend. May the Valar guard and guide the rest of you. I will return as soon as I can. Arcag's rear hoof lashed out at me as I approached, and his ugly head snaked around more than once, seeking my flesh as I saddled him.
He was not one of the horses we'd brought from Minas Tirith-I'd pulled him from the burning barn of an orc-raided farm. It was said among the Rangers that the fact that the orcs themselves would have nothing to do with him, including eating him, should have been a warning to me.
He was dirt brown in color and scrawny, with a skinny neck, huge head, and a ratty tail upon which little hair grew.
Why he was still a stud was a mystery, though perhaps it was simply because no one could get close enough to him to geld him.
Any self respecting Rohirrim would have shot him at once, and fed him to his hounds. His vices were many and his virtues few. He bucked, he reared, he bit and kicked, both people and horses, and would roll in a stream or rub you off on a tree given a moment's chance.
He was hard-mouthed, rough-gaited and surly to an extreme. Still, he was a horse, and I'd been happy to be mounted again. And I discovered over time that he did have some good points.
Arcag was strong, incredibly enduring, faster than he looked, and could live on next to nothing. And he was fearless. Orcs, large or small, he took as a personal insult, and he would bear me even right up to the side of a Mumak, which most horses will not endure.
Because the Mumak is covered with tough and armored hide, the only way to kill one is to shoot it right in the eye, but that is difficult to do on foot, for though they are vast and mighty, they are also swift, and you have their huge feet and their noses, which they also use like great clubs, to deal with, and the trees and limbs which they trample in their passage can trip you up or fall upon you.
If you can shoot well from horseback, and can find the rare horse that will close with a Mumak, the deed becomes almost possible. Arcag and I had two Mumak to our credit.
I slung the Haradrim short bow that had given me my battle name on my back with a full quiver of arrows, and gave Arcag a hard knee to the belly.
When saddled, he always sucked in air till his belly looked like some puffer fish from Lebinnin. He oofed, and I tightened his girth swiftly, avoided the inevitable snap with a boot to his nose, and swung on.
Mablung tossed me a spear, then mounted his own horse, and once the Captain and Lorend were up, the four of us set out. Behind us, Anborn called out an order and the Rangers started south down the river, trotting at a pace they could keep up for hours, and that would cover more ground than one would believe possible.
We went even more swiftly in their advance, heading for the Fords of Osgiliath, from thence to cross the Pelennor Fields and make our way towards the Tower of Guard.
We walked and trotted and occaisionally galloped, and only the miles unrolling beneath our horses' feet gave indication of the passage of time, for all was dark and drear above us.
Our spears we kept ready, and our eyes traveled continuously, for we were all warriors, and the same thought had occured to us all-- that the Sun was no longer a hindrance to the Enemy's soldiery and that there might be scouting parties even now in advance of us.
When we slowed to breathe the horses, our vigilance did not slacken, but we used the opportunity to speak to one another, mostly of simple things.
Mablung and Lorend talked much of what they would do after the War-the trades they would return to, the wines they'd quaff, the women left behind who would welcome them home.
I thought a victory over the Dark unlikely, but their stories cheered me nonetheless. I questioned the Captain about the Halflings, wanting to know if he'd ever read or heard of anything about them before we'd encountered them, and what he thought their chances were, travelling East with that skulking creature they'd acquired.
But he had little he could or would tell me. I certainly never came across any mention of them in the libraries, and Mithrandir never mentioned them during his visits.
Though I have no doubt he knew all about them, and would have been just the person you should have questioned, Hethlin. And I would certainly like to have been there when you did!
That is ill news indeed, if it be true. It was common knowledge among the Rangers, though we did not discuss it in the Captain's hearing, that his association with the wizard Mithrandir was a small but significant part of the estrangement between himself and his father the Steward.
With Boromir absent, it falls to me to take his place. There were those of us who thought his visions sent by the Valar themselves, while others at times wondered if they were not sent by the Enemy to torture him.
Hurriedly, I sought to distract him, while at the same time easing a worry that had been in my heart of late. You will command the whole army, not just our company.
What are we to do then? Will one of us become the new commander? Or will you set another over us?
Place us under the command of your kinsman, the Prince? What are we to do in a seige or a frontal assualt? We are forest fighters, skirmishers.
We do not dream, yet we knew this day was inevitable. We have fought back the Dark with you these last few years, Captain-are we to be shunted aside at the last?
But anything I say may be overuled by my father, the Steward. Should he leave the decision to me, I will find armor for you all, and keep you close by me.
For if this is to be the final battle against the Dark, and our destiny is to fall beneath it, then I ask no better death than the one I will find in the company of my Rangers, though even now some small corner of my heart refuses to lose hope.
And as for how you will fight--I think you will find, Hethlin, that though this battle will be a different sort than you are used to, a fell warrior such as yourself will be as useful on the walls or in the fields of Minas Tirith as you were beneath the trees of Ithilien.
A good archer always has a place, in any army. Faramir merely smiled in acknowledgment, said, "Rangers, we have some miles yet to cover," and signaled us to the gallop once more.
We crossed the Fords, passed the Rammas and entered the Pelennor Fields. Sunset was nigh, but I knew it more from the feel of the air than anything else, since the cloud cover had reached so far to the west.
It looked as if we might actually see the Sun peep out from the clouds right before it set, and I was looking forward to even such a brief sight of it.
As we drew near to the Gate, we urged the horses on once more, and they, sensing an end to their journey and that their suppers were near, surged forward with renewed energy.
II They came when we were a scant half mile from the Gate. I felt them before I saw them. The short hairs on the nape of my neck stood up first, then it felt as if icy water was pouring down my back.
One of them cried out, a call so full of malice and triumphant evil that it drained the very strength from my bones, leaving me clinging trembling and nauseous to Arcag's saddle.
A dark shadow swooped over me, and the downdraft from a pair of mighty wings nearly choked me, so foul was the stench that it carried.
If someone had taken the reek of a battlefield, unburied and left for a week in the sun, and concentrated it, it still would not have been as bad as that smell.
My vision dimmed, and I swayed in the saddle. I heard horses screaming. Arcag made a funny sort of protesting squeal, pinned his ears back, took the bit in his teeth, and bolted.
I could only hope that he was headed for the Gate, for I had not the strength to control him, or any way of telling where he was going.
Another of the monsters screamed, but along with it another noise arose--Lord Faramir was sounding his horn. Whether he sounded it to call help from the Tower, or to rally us to him mattered not at all.
Clear and silvery the call rose into the dark, and the sound of it put heart into me. My Captain was alive and well, and as usual, he'd kept his wits about him.
If I could but reach him, I'd be all right too I took the bit back from Arcag and urged him in the direction I'd heard the horn. The creatures turned and came back around.
How many were there? I couldn't tell. Four or five perhaps--at least one for each of us. Their hides seemed like that of the Mumak; thick and knobbed, they would be as difficult to penetrate with blow or dart as armor.
Their vast wings were featherless and pinioned, more like those of a bat--or a dragon, if one could believe the descriptions of legend.
I could not bring myself to look higher, at the black-robed forms that rode them, for they were simply too horrible and my eyes refused to fasten upon them.
As the monsters swooped low the second time, Mablung and Lorends' horses, maddened beyond reason, threw them off and ran screaming into the darkness, while scoundrel Arcag bore me still, his breath coming in great, rasping wheezes.
I started to rein back, Arcag slinging his head in protest, to return to the others. I could barely see a tall shape ahead that must have been Faramir, still mounted on Teilyn, who was snorting and shuddering in terror, but turning under her master's direction, back under the black wings, back to his fallen men.
We'll follow as we can! He threw himself upon his fellow Ranger, knocking him flat as the creature passed over, missing them.
Two of the vile horrors swooped down upon the Captain, who drew his sword, faintly glimmering in the dark, and smote at them as they passed.
Cursing under my breath , I sought to spur to the Captain's aid when Arcag leapt sideways of a sudden, screaming.
He was not quite fast enough to dodge the creature that stooped on us from behind. The aura of fear the things carried with them beat loured about me as it passed overhead, its putrescent belly gleaming.
I bent low over Arcag's neck, gasping and retching, and felt a giant claw rake a line of fire across my scalp. I shrieked, there was a downbeat of giant wings, and the serpentine tail of the creature lashed across Arcag's head, but a handsbreath before my face.
There was a cracking sound as it impacted his skull, and he pitched forward, dead before he hit the ground. Stiff with the terror the things inspired, I was thrown over his head, and it was only by the merest lucky chance that I landed mostly on my side and shoulder, and didn't break an arm, or my head or neck as well.
The fall knocked most of the breath from my body, and for a few moments I simply lay there, my hands digging into the earth as if to gain purchase.
I was weeping, and pressed my face into the grass and dirt, and wished I could simply dig a deep hole, crawl into it, and bury myself to escape these awful things.
Hoofbeats approached, I felt them through the ground, then I heard the roar of Teilyn's breath beneath the thunder of the wings, and my Captain's voice, calm as if we were trading tales after a quiet supper in Henneth Anun.
Can you walk? Trembling, I rolled up onto my knees, and from thence to my feet. Looking up at him, I could see that he was shuddering despite the calm of his voice, his eyes fixed on the sky and his sword at the ready.
Mablung and Lorend were running up. For I really think we need to leave this place. As I ran, I unslung my bow from my back , and groped in my quiver for an undamaged arrow, for I could hear the creatures returning, and something else as well--a deep voice crying out in a language I did not understand.
With my face averted from them, and Faramir at my side, some measure of calm had returned to me. I did not know if I would be able to shoot if I turned to face them again, but I knew that I would have to try They're tough of hide, like a Mumak, I thought to myself.
No use shooting the belly or flanks. The eye's a possible target, but it's small and surrounded by bony ridges. The mouth, when it opens, or the base of the wing or leg where they join the body--the armor may be thinner there.
I stopped, turned, and knocked arrow to bow. Out of the corner of my right eye, I saw a white glow from which the voice seemed to emanate, and for some reason it heartened me--till I looked up upon my foe, and the horror came upon me again threefold.
For I finally crossed the glance of one of the Riders, and though it had no eyes, or even face, that could be seen beneath the dark hood, yet the malevolence of its regard turned my very bones to ice.
My fingers trembled upon the string, I dropped the arrow, and it seemed to me that I could hear a hissing, mocking laughter as it dived upon my lord.
Then, much to my surprise, something deep in the core of me awoke again, perhaps same stubborness that had kept me alive when my family had been slain, perhaps something else.
For my parents had been Dunadain of the North, and the deep part of me seemed almost to recognize an ancient enemy. With steady hands I set another arrow to the string, and drew.
Having no magic arrows, or Elven bow, I had the feeling my shot would be wasted against the Rider, so I chose my target and released at its flying mount with a shout of "Elbereth!
And as I cried that name, and my arrow sped towards its target, lightning seemed to crackle up from the ground to attack another Rider, one that seemed to be attacking the source of the light.
The lightning struck the other Rider, while my arrow thudded into the base of the wing of the beast I had selected, just in front of its Rider's leg.
The Rider the lightning had struck wailed in dismay, and broke off the attack. The beast I had shot staggered in the air, then joined it, flapping raggedly, along with three others.
Calling their dire calls, they spiraled up into the darkness and dissappeared. Faint cheers rang out from the walls of Minas Tirith, and men from the City began to pour out to meet us.
The light brightened and intensified, and I turned as the source of it rode forward to meet my lord. An old man he seemed, dressed all in white, long of beard and tall of hat, riding without saddle or bridle the most beautiful stallion I had ever seen.
But something told me he was no dotard--the light seemed to come from him and shine through him, and he bore both sword and staff with the air of one who knew how to use them.
Therefore, I was unsurprised when I heard how Faramir addressed him. All unlooked for, you are well come in a dark hour!
I had heard that you were slain. But I would know who told it to you.
