A Eärendil, elenion ancalima!
Shining mariner gazing from heaven afar.
How fair art thou, radiant star so bright:
Of gold and silver, everlasting hallowed light.
Belegaer, Belegaer, how have the years passed!
Thou art constant and forever unchanging.
Could I return to thy shore at long last,
I, restless and anxious, ever ranging?
Grey ships, grey ships! Return to me,
Canst thou still feel the waters foaming?
Come! Let us together sail the ocean sea
And recall the bright days of restless roaming.
