Anand's Lament

by Vega

O tell me, where has the Sage of Crystals gone?
For in Imladris I hear his footsteps no more,
And the Elves of the valley in sadness mourn.
O tell me, has he departed this hither shore?

Alas! to everlasting fire his heart was drawn,
To Moria, where no star shows the way.
No more will he walk the groves of Eregion,
No more shall Anand behold the light of day.
