King Theoden Quote – Where are the horse and the rider?

​    Where now are the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing?

    Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?

    Where is the harp on the harpstring, and the red fire glowing?

    Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing?

    They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow;

    The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow.

    Who shall gather the smoke of the deadwood burning,

    Or behold the flowing years from the Sea returning?

3 Day 3 Quote Challenge – Day 1

Thank you to Erika for nominating me for the Three Day – Three Quotes Challenge. This is the third time I’ve been nominated for this and I love taking part every time.

Erika is a totally amazing woman who has such an amazing outlook on life. She is a constant source of encouragement and always surprises me with her tastes in music or… something about her. She teaches me all the time that it’s ok if I’m me, to me that’s a beautiful thing for one human to be able to do for another. So if you’re one of the few people who aren’t following here – go and have a look at her blog in the least and say hi. She’s amazing! 🙂

The rules for this challenge are as follows:

1  –  Thank the blogger that nominated you.
2 – Share one new quote on three consecutive days on your blog. They can be from anywhere, anyone, or anything.
3 – On each of the three days, nominate three more bloggers to carry on with the fun! No pressure; nominees are free to decline. I’m going to try and nominate three a day and in another twist put three quotes up (as I usually run out).

I hope you can all join in the fun and I look forward to your quotes.
