The Death of Thorin Oakenshield

Wielding a mighty axe the leader of the dwarves came to a noble end Yes, he was overcome at first by greed and lust for gold Yet his heart went out to the doughty hobbit Bilbo after the battle of Five Armies ended He let his rage die Yes, at first he was overcome by his desire for the gem of gems - the Arkenstone Yet in the end he realized that real riches lie in friendship the joy of time spent with those we honor and trust
