forgive me if I meddle in your affairs [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img], but, since I deem Glorifinniel is right, I'll post the verse in full (I like it much):

Will thou learn the lore /that was long secret
of the Five that came
/ from a far country?
One only returned.
/ Others never again
under Men's dominion
/ Middle-earth shall seek
until Dagor Dagorath
/ and the Doom cometh.
How hast thou heard it:
/ the hidden counsel
of the Lord of the West
/ in the land of Aman?
The long roads are lost
/ that led thither,
and to mortal Men
/ Manwë speaks not.
From the West–that–was
/ a wind bore it
to the sleeper's ear,
/ in the silences
under night-shadow,
/ when news is brought
from lands forgotten
/ and lost ages
over seas of years
/ to the searching thought.
Not all are forgotten
/ by the Elder King.
Sauron he saw
/ at a slow menace ....
Egroeg Ihkhsal

- Would you believe in the love at first sight?
- Yes I'm certain that it happens all the time!
