Actually, Charles I just got chopped, but in no way was his son the cause of it.

Yeah, new theme should be up in a while, just narrowing it down....

The new theme will simply be

It's an old story contest theme, but, oh heck. Carry on guys.

     I suppose the message is: he finds long forgotten youth preserved in photos and in reminiscing, he cries

You got it!

    I conclude that you speak of longing for restoration implied by the first line 'long forgotten youth'

Essentially..yes. And also the idea of a somewhat unexpected restoration..if that makes sense

    And... the winner is...
    *drumroll*
    pangtongshu

*gasp* that is me! =D wooo!!! Thank you very much!

I like being right. And yes, it is you, the winner, le champion! Congrats, Pangtong! :D

@murasaki:
I thought nichos word was enough, but maybe it needs some clarification..
- yes, fire can generally be counted as two syllables.
- Free from fire's bane is the desolation of Smaug, which is the name given to the area around the Lonely Mountain, desolated because of the worms flames. It is now free from his fire as he is dead.
- What's it got to do with restoration? Now that the malefic fire is gone, birds came back, Dale is rebuilt, and the vegetation wil also be coming back; the whole region is once again thriving and peaceful. Thus restoration. Sorry for not explaining beforehand.

Oh, don't apologize for not explaining. I understood better than I let on, really. I've read the book once or twice, so... I just thought that for those who hadn't read the book it might be confusing, but really, it was a topping haiku. Anyone who sits down and reads Tolkien is a good person in my book. :D

It is just his viewpoints on magic. He dislikes magic..and finds it stupid. A poem is subjective to the author
