The Fall of Gil-galad

Gil-galad was an Elven-king

Of him the harpers sadly sing:

the last whose realm was fair and free

between the Mountains and the Sea.

 

His sword was long, his lance was keen,

his shining helm afar was seen;

the countless stars of heaven's field

were mirrored in his silver shield.

 

But long ago he rode away,

and where he dwelleth none can say;

far into darkness fell his star

in Mordor where the shadows are...
