Maigon

   Maigon the Bard is not often sung of, for he was not a particularly prolific writer, and many of his works speak of times of light and darkness alike.  Maigon lived during the mid First Age.  In the destruction of Nargothrond, his verses were lost among the verses of Ecthelion and others who experimented with writing down their works.  The verses of Maigon were often confused with those of Ecthelion.  This was straightened out in the archives of Gondor, when a specific rhythmic pattern was attributed to Maigon.

   Perhaps the most famous of his verses is the song "Of Ending Time", the verse telling of the coming and hinting of the sullying of the Eldar.

   Maigon's words were remembered best archived in the Library of Minas Tirith, and the Archives of Cirbann (the Grey Havens).
