Joy has just left Hobbiton.

It sounds like something from UT, though I have only read part of it.

It reminds me of the compainions of Eärendil that accompianied him to Valinor when he sought the aid of the Valar for Middle Earth. I just wish that I could remember their names.

Edit:::: Just did a little search - [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

It is part of the Last Ship from the Tolkien Reader. It is Firiel's Song as the Elves seeking Elvenhome.

Nay!' they answered. 'Far away
on the last road faring,
leaving western havens grey,
the seas of shadow daring,
we go back to Elvenhome,
where the White Tree is growing,
and the Star shines upon the foam
on the last shore flowing.

'To mortal fields say farewell,
Middle-earth forsaking!
In Elvenhome a clear bell
in the high tower is shaking.
Here grass fades and leaves fall,
and sun and moon wither,
and we have heard the far call
that bids us journey thither'.

God bless,

As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?
