GREETING AN UNEXPECTED VISIT



Zitat
Here comes the buoyant wizard,
Drawn to jovial ways, as heat exactly calls the sleepy lizard,
Bearer of joy and wonders in the main,
Partaking fondly in the peace of the Halfling's domain.

LOYAL CROWN OF OLD



Zitat
In the heat of the clash,
The fire-mount erupted with flames and burst in flash,
The loyal king stood bold and just,
Facing the tyrant heading out of the lair, solely moved by revenge and lust.

Last fine lineage of old,
Since the sinking of his past, since the change of the ancient world,
When High Men would gaze with hope at the distant western shore,
Holding order precious and being excellent sages of lore.

A FLOWER TO WISH FOR



Zitat
Some luck for marble and stone,
Some better wisdom for who reigns alone,
Some great honour for blade and shield,
Some more will to build.

Awaiting the prophesied flower,
Which might cure anything gone dreary and sour,
Which shall rekindle hearts anew,
As the wise foresaw and well knew.

HARBOUR OF MERCY



Zitat
Infallible harbour of mercy,
One which never faileth to rescue from raging blue-sea,
Thither may the troubled vessel head,
So shall the voluble tide of case have led.

Thee storm will not silence,
Thou shalt keep the fiend away and shield from violence,
Pray, foul is not to break through,
For ever is the seagull wary of peril whence she flew.

SEED TO HALLOW



Zitat
Thus shall this golden tree tell,
How blessed the place was, how humble crushed fell,
Gift of holiness, from a yester-morrow,
Seed to render sacred and soil hallow.

NAY



Zitat
Nay, it's not finished ere hope goes out and dies,
Before which we'll strive to war for right and unveil lies,
When sun leaves space for dark,
Still is there a chance to wake the slumbering fire, in need of flaring spark.

LIVING TO BEAR



Zitat
Such was decreed how all would fare,
An ever-lasting existence beneath the roundness of Arda's air,
The fair Elf shall live so long the world breathes,
The sole killing he dreads, as in pain his soul writhes.

Yet parts his spirit not forever,
For their love for matter nought may truly sever,
Weary grows the Firstborn, living to bear the wounds of the past,
Lingering in eternity and outliving death, while mortals wither and fade fast.

RUPTURE OF HUES



Zitat
Thus came the time to embrace light,
To leave behind the lone island, for so brighter a sight,
Profound did the Eldar crave the land of dream,
Decision of heart, and not on a whim.

Fair wings bore the weight of vessels and ships,
Brought beyond the curtain of death, now known just by fables and lips,
Passing through the sundering tides of the ancient West,
Forbidden and loud, lingering on the very end's crest.

Heading gladly thither, whither would the sun then die,
A virgin realm, clear from vice and immune to lie,
Yonder, past the rupture of hues in the stone,
There bliss had been first, where holy kin shall have later grown.

Within the domain of rule and faith,
Far from anguish or haunting wraith,
Here dwells eternity's seat, upon whiteness that ever is to last,
Close to the encircling blue, whence come storms and lightning blast.

FORGING NIGHT AND DREAD



Zitat
Betwixt glory and fame,
Hath the Smith laboured, turning in legend his name,
Prior to moonlight, prior to doom,
Thou wilt hear of sadness and gloom.

Alas, not even within solemn right,
Have woes spared the angel-kingdom, then sole beacon of light,
It was, thus, greed and ferocious will, which dry the world shall have bled,
Clad in the shame of murder, forging night and dread.

ADVERSE FATE



Zitat
Ever shall the wheel turn,
Ever will villages suffer and shacks burn,
It seems this adverse fate fancies a tragic loop,
Boding far ill, for every gentle preferring hearth and soup.

Ever shall shadows pave their entrance anew,
Breaching the solid fort of our hope, now manned by so few,
Foul phantoms walk again the ways of common,
Spectres are conjured in the dark, devils are summoned.

Into the forest of the world, an old nightmare rose,
Adamant in bloody vengeance, surely the mightiest of foes,
Craving the end of all that has hitherto been,
Drawn to cursed gold, on slaughter very keen.

It's time one were there to fight,
The last defence of good kind, a cure for blight,
Aye, heroes mankind may honour and hail,
When the Immortals part from weariness and hence sail.

EMPTY HALLS



Zitat
Throughout night and day,
Among every wonder and deed that see you may,
Very little stands beside the deep mines,
Equalled by naught, great chest of riches and prideful signs.

Then came the hour of fear,
And fearsome grew its vicious enemies, recalled in tear,
No more shall we delight the halls with song and tale,
Void and silence are the sole companion, one to pity and wail.

RELINQUISH

Manwë stands on top of his holy mountain, as the armies of Númenórë land on Aman and swarm the immortal shores, thus breaking the antique alliance between Valinor and Men. One that was forged by fire and common struggle against the snares and deceits of Morgoth.

Then, fearing that ruin could be brought in the very realm of bliss and opposing the idea that the Archangels' hands would be stained with the blood of the Children, the Ancient King of Arda relinquishes his delegated powers over the world and invokes the Almighty.




Zitat
Father of all, almighty and good,
Maker of dawn, water, stone and wood,
I relinquish my rule and remit it to thee,
Ultimate sovereign of love, beyond the end thou art to be.

The Star-Island hath disowned and betrayed the vow,
Breaching the Ban and speaking woes loud,
Take the sceptre, take my crown,
So foes may suffer and sink down.

WONDERS AND PLIGHT

The Almighty then answers the plea of his supreme herald on Arda...



Zitat
Woes to the wrongful, woes to the evil,
Void is to await rebel and devil,
Now shall I stretch my hand over the Isle and smite her with my wonder!
Woes to those seeking endless life beneath my heavens, in the Realm of Yonder!

ADVENT OF PEACE



Zitat
Rain no longer falls,
A final sunset sight enthrals,
The ending of grim deeds,
The rueful Elf farewell bids.

It's time for a new day to commence,
Refreshed breeze for all to sense,
Those who came first, they thus bequeath a greyer shore,
To those who awoke second, in the obscure mazes of another lore.

Deathless is no more the dweller of hither,
He has parted, heading to majesty in the shires of thither,
Longing to live the ages ahead under an eternal dawn,
Carrying regrets and remorse across the waves, where saints weep and angels mourn.

Glorious king, bound to die,
Much you fought and never lie,
A newer era is your bequest,
To hold tight and keep, both in despairing worst and in joyous best.

AMASSING SHADOW



Zitat
Sun has sunk in a restless night,
A bright day has plunged into mares and fright,
Light of old, vanished and gone,
Recalled and yearned in nostalgic song.

What had fallen has risen again,
Bidding to besiege the world and ravage land,
Such wraith of ash and gloom,
Beacon of nought else but doom.

The Dark Lord wakes storm and thunder,
Wealth and fields his foul legions are to plunder,
Amassing shadow in his dreary kingdom,
A last enemy of greatness and wisdom.

Pawns are placed and set,
Shall the mortal monarch his foe inside let?
Shall the fine stone of Men withstand the test?
For the sake of the never-waning Good in the West.
