Lúthien I.



Royal daughter of holy blood,
Whose beauty and grace anything on Arda surpassed,
Love a cursed fortress tore apart and the Enemy made kneel,
For she was in truth the fairest and mightiest of the Firstborns.

Lúthien II.



Her songs could tame the foulest beasts and stone shatter,
The Judge too by her lament was swayed,
As her in front of the hardest choice he put,
She chose love and from the World forever departed.

Númenor.



The mighty realm of the Five-Pointed Isle,
By one of the two royal twins founded, when he elected mortality and glory,
Closest land to the immortal shires out of all the other ones,
Fertile gift of the Powers, from whom the valiant Men their longer life got,
Much they are destined to rule and our fate to determine.

The Grinding Ice.



Desolation of ice and silence,
A path that the Powers only dared to tread,
Against all intruders it was a horrific defence,
The deadliest test for the Noldor and for whom them led.

The first of two compositions regarding Imladris. The enchanted valley at the slopes of the Misty Mountains. Considered the last homely place left in the western lands, it often symbolised protection and rest for anyone in need.

Imladris I.




An ancient sanctuary lies in that valley,
That secrecy hides and naught could break,
Serene resting or thorough studying one may be pleased by,
As well as all things that make the spirit noble and wisdom rekindle.

Imladris II.



The Lord of the valley ever-vigilant remains,
It is told that his prowess the bliss there sustains,
The kindest host of gentle travellers,
Neither journeys nor quests this shelter on their way forget.

The Gaol.



A gigantic gaol in the grey fields of Mandos,
From which none may escape or through break,
Be he of the feeble Men, an Elda, a wise Maia or a mighty Vala who much can,
The Enemy there was chained and three long eras still had lain.

Ilúvatar.



Before time, space and anything foreseen, the One has always been,
''Be it!'' it said once, and Eä then was.

The Ainur.



The bright Ainur later came, the One's first and prime descent,
Long they listened and much thought, until time was proper and Eä they entered.

Children of Ilúvatar.



Of Ilúvatar only they are the grandest deed,
Elves are mighty and the wisest of all, living until Arda shall indeed be,
Men are frail and many things suffer, yet glory their memory bears and the gift of Death by the One to them was granted,
And like the powerful Vala who much can, the humblest man the never-perishing Flame in his heart keeps and saves.

Gathering Shadows: The gentle Wood-elves of Mirkwood, who once inhabited the southern forests, after a millennium of peace, learnt in horror that a nameless shadow had taken residence in the ruined fortress which lay not far from their dwellings.



Peace seems to have been finally marred,
A nameless shadow from the outer world, the eerie fortress as lair elected,
Tales say it is much old and by hatred deeply consumed,
Voices we shall believe, as trees now rot and from venom naught seems immune.

Gathering Shadows: The Journey through the woods.



As days get darker and grave, our king the hardest path decided to tread,
To lead his people away from such relentless threat,
And so our merry homes and lands we must abandon,
For of war we are all much weary, and of pain our heart still bears the burden.

The New Foundation of the Woodland Realm: Thranduil's address.



To the North we headed and great halls in the stone we carved,
None shall enter nor flee from my rule, towards the outside fortunes cold we are, for in a blink kingdoms and realms arise and decay.

Ulmo, the Dweller of the Deep.



Never has one of the Powers been so dearer to the Eldar than Ulmo, Lord of oceans and seas,
He, who in forbidden depths dwells and naught disregards, all senses and sees,
Seas, rivers and streams anything that occurs on mortal shores to his ears bring,
And the Evil hates and much fears him, for water may not be snared nor tamed.

Balrogs.



Bright spirits of light and wisdom they once were,
Until the Evil tainted them and terrible characters became in the lore.
