Me myself and I
Eomer's Eored
Interactive

Éomer was a Marshal of the Mark

Who defied his uncle Théoden King

He rode forth from his Eastfold base

To oppose a trespassing band of Uruks

 

The éored fought long and hard

Determined to punish creatures foul

A victory was soon achieved

At cost of loss of horse and man

 

With heavy heart Éomer set out to Edoras

Knowing he would have to face Kings wrath

But then out of the green of the field

Sprung three strange wanderers of far

 

Éomer dismounted and drew his sword

Tall and mighty he came across

He questioned Man, Elf and Dwarf

For no travellers were in Rohan allowed

 

Tales were told and decisions made

Horses were given to intruders bold

Deed most likely to be punished hard

Paths were separated to soon be joined

 

At Edoras Éomer arrived heavy hearted

Was brought before uncle the King

There he defended himself before forked tongue

And by order of Worm thrown in the dungeon

 

There now sat the nephew of the King

Alone and removed from staton and arms

Éomer sighed as darkness took Rohan

Hoping for the coming of Sword that was Broken

 

Morning came as the man was released

Kneeling and offering sword up high

To reborn and old Théoden King

Now he knew that hope had arrived

 

Horns were sounded

Preparations were made

The Rohirrim would ride to Helms Deep

To battle, edath and freedom

 

Güthwine and Anduril sparkled together

Cleaving the darkness with light of good

A bond was formed and alliance renewed

As Éomer and Aragorn battled side by side

 

Victory was achieved after long night of fight

With coming of Westfold and White Rider

New course was set to Isengard Ring

Where was to be spoken with Saruman fallen

 

The Rohirrim rode to Dunharrow Vale

Where Red Arrow was brought in need

To Gondor Rohirrim would ride at last

With a muster as loud as roaring thunder

 

Journey led Éomer through Halfirienwood

With promise to slay many Orc necks

Woses led the Rohirrim through woods

And saw smoke rising from Pelennor

 

Éomer charged fearless and proud

Bringing death to forces of the dark

When he heard a terrible cry

Then he found uncle and sister slain

 

Despair and anger came now over Éomer King

His horn was sounded loudly over Pelennor

His wrath struck foe with greatest fear

The Hord of Éomer filling them with terror

 

Not to soon came help from the Harbours

For the tidings had turned for the King

Upon foe came Flame of the West

Avenging loss and sorrow of day black

 

Victory was assured with coming of Isildurs Heir

The battle was won but not yet the war

The Elessar would ride to Black Gate

At his side was Éomer King the great

 

The forces of darkness were challenged openly

United army of the west fought brave

But no military victory could be achieved

For the force of Mordor proved too great

 

Yet their true goal was still achieved

When towers fell and Sauron destroyed

The task of Ringbearer had been completed

And the War of the Ring had come to an end

 

A new Era began with crowning of Elessar

Oath of Eorl renewed by Gondor and Horsemasters land

Bonded in friendship for a long time to come

As long as the royal families would last

 

But evil was not completely banished

Elessar often rode to war in the east

At his side flowed the green banner

At his side fought Éomer the King

 

And the thunder of hooves continued
