Up on the bridge of Khazad-dum,
A shadow marched as Durin’s Bane:
The Balrog of impending doom
A blade of darkness wreathed in flame.
Fly you fools, said Mithrandir,
This foe you cannot fight:
With sword & axe & arrow here,
This shadow wasn’t cast by light.
So through the mines of Moria
They ran as under whip,
A match met of Maiar:
The breaking of the Fellowship.
This is a hand-painted helmet with a Lord of the Rings theme. Gandalf is depicted battling the Balrog
on the bridge of Khazad-dum, as described by J.R.R. Tolkien.
