The finest rockets ever seen:
they burst in stars of blue and green,
or after thunder golden showers
came falling like a rain of flowers.

Re: Sing along...

'Grey now as tears, gleaming silver,
red then it rolled, roaring water:
foam dyed with blod flamed at sunset;
as beacons mountains burned at evening;
red fell the dew in Rammas Echor.'

'To open the eternal worlds, to open the immortal eyes of man inwards, into the worlds of thought, into Eternity.'</p>

Re: encantations... ?

Home is behind, the world ahead,
And there are many paths to tread
Through shadows to the edge of night,
Until the stars are all alight.

HerenIstarion 07-23-2001 12:03 AM

Over the land there lies a long shadow,
westward reaching wings of darkness.
The Tower trembles; to the tombs of kings
doom approaches. The Dead awaken;
for the hour is come for the oathbreakers;
at the Stone of Erech they shall stand again
and hear there a horn in the hills ringing.
Whose shall the horn be? Who shall call them
from the prey twilight, the forgotten people?
The heir of him to whom the oath they swore.
From the North shall he come, need shall drive him:
he shall pass the Door to the Paths of the Dead

Re: encantations... ?

Are these the words of Malbeth the Seer, which were recited by Aragorn before entering the Paths of the Dead?

Re: encantations... ?

Thanks <img src=smile.gif ALT=":)">

Who, where, and what is this all about?

First in Quenya:
<blockquote>Quote:<hr> Vanda sina termaruva Elenna-nóreo alcar enyalien ar Elendil Vorondo voronwe. Nai tiruvantes i hįrar mahalmassen mi Nśmen ar i Eru i or ilye mahalmar ea tennoio.<hr></blockquote>
And then the same in Common Speech:
<blockquote>Quote:<hr> This oath shall stand in memory of the glory of the Land of the Star, and of the faith of Elendil the Faithful, in the keeping of those who sit upon the thrones of the West and of the One who is above all thrones forever.<hr></blockquote>

Re: encantations... ?

Re: encantations... ?

A wind by night in Nothern lands
Arose, and loud it cried,
And drove the ship from elven-strands
Across the streaming tide.

His head was higher than the helm of kings
with heathen crowns, his heart keener
and his soul clearer than swords of heroes
polished and proven: than plated gold
his worth was greater.

Halbarad 11-05-2001 06:22 PM

I have no idea. I haven't read home yet

Telchar 11-09-2001 08:04 AM

Im clueless but it sounds like it is about Elendil

Joy 02-28-2002 11:01 PM

H-I, It almost sounds like a quote from Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. But, would you go that route??? [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img]

Bruce MacCulloch 03-01-2002 12:35 AM

Are you sure it isn't HoME?
It sounds suspiciously Lays-ish.

HerenIstarion 03-01-2002 02:27 AM

It ain't Sir Gawain and ain't HoME, yet Joy is on the right path

Joy 03-02-2002 11:34 PM

H-I, a hint, por favor!!!! I have wracked my brain over this! HELP!!!

HerenIstarion 03-05-2002 03:32 AM

well, the one whom the verse speaks of was historical person

Joy 03-06-2002 04:12 AM

I know that Tolkien wrote of Beowulf in The Monsters and the Critics. So I now guess that it could be Beowulf. I am going to have to get that book now.

HerenIstarion 03-06-2002 05:39 AM

nay, but closer

Joy 03-08-2002 11:03 PM

SAID BY TORHTHELM TO TIDWALD ABOUT BEORHTNOTH, BEORTHELM'S SON, WHO IS DEAD.

SORRY ABOUT THE CAPS-LOCK. THE KEY IS STUCK. I'LL HAVE TO SEE IF I CAN FIX IT.

Joy 03-08-2002 11:16 PM

Sorry about that. The quote is from The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth.

Man, that was a good on H-I!! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

It took me forever. When you said Beowulf was closer. I took a look at that name. I remembered that I read somewhere that Beorn, from the Hobbit, was closed related to Beowulf in meaning - Something like Bee wolf and Bee.

I started to look though his bibliograph and noted The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth. I found it online at Beorhtnoth.

As I read it, I came across some of my favorite tales, Sir Gawain, Beowulf and the Battle of Maldon.

Hey, thanks for making me dig, I was reunited with some of the classics because of that.

HerenIstarion 03-09-2002 02:19 AM

The pleasure was all mine :)
absolutely correct, go ahead

Btw, nice number of posts you have right now - 333

Joy 03-09-2002 02:39 AM

Who said this and to whom?

Quote:

Come forth, O monstruous craven lord,
and fight with thine own hand and sword,
thou wielder of hosts of banded thralls,
thou tyrant leaguered with strong walls,
thou foe of Gods and elvish race!
I wait thee here. Come! Show thy face!'

Eowyn of Ithilien 03-09-2002 06:31 AM

Fingolfin to Melkor?

Joy 03-09-2002 01:53 PM

Very good Eowny, your turn.

Eowyn of Ithilien 03-09-2002 06:30 PM

Far over the misty mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away ere break of day,
To find our long-forgotten gold.

Whose song is this:

Quote:

There daffodils amoung the ordered trees
Did nod in Spring, and men laughed deep and long
Singing as they laboured happy lays
And lighting even with a drinking song.
