Leaves of Gold

I sang of leaves, of leaves of gold, and leaves of gold there grew:

Of wind I sang, a wind there came and in the branches blew.

Beyond the Sun, beyond the Moon, the foam was on the Sea,

And by the strand of Ilmrin there grew a golden Tree

Beneath the stars of Ever-eve, in Eldamar it shone,

In Eldamar beside the walls of Elven Tirion

There long the golden leaves have grown upon the branching years,

While here beyond the Sundering Seas now fall the Elven-tears

O Lrien!  The Winter comes, the bare and leafless Day;

The leaves are falling in the stream, the River flows away

O Lrien!  Too long have I dewlt upon this Hither Shore

And in a fading crown have twined the golden elanor

But if of ships I now should sing, what ship would come to me?

What ship would bear me ever back across so wide a Sea
