Silmaril Hurt and Heal XI: Songs and Poems

Remember when we used to play Hurt and Heal all the time?

It was great fun (and also very exasperating and revealed bad things about your fellow Downers, such as unacceptable character preferences ) so I'd like to revive it.

  • Each player has 3 nominations and 5 secondings.
  • You are not allowed to second your own nominee.
  • Characters have to be seconded twice before they get in. In other words, they need 3 votes (one of which is the nomination).

The actual game:
  • From 20 to 7 - each player has 3 votes: 2 hurts and 1 heal. Double hurts are allowed.
  • From 6 to 4 - each player has 3 votes: 2 hurts and 1 heal. Double hurts are not allowed: a player has to hurt 2 different characters and heal one, or she may use only 1 hurt and 1 heal.
  • When but 3 characters are left each player has either a hurt or a heal.
  • Wait for at least three posters to vote prior to you voting again.

I'd like to suggest songs and poems for the theme. Please use the first line of the poem as the title, and quote or (if it's very long) link to the full poem in your nomination post so that people can refresh their memories. (No need to keep doing it in subsequent posts though, one quote/link per poem is enough.)

On the list:

The King beneath the mountains (see below)
Out of doubt, out of dark to the day's rising (see below)
The Shadows where the Mewlips dwell (link)

Nominations / secondings:
Agan 0/5

Please include the list of the nominees, as well as how many nominations people have left, when you nominate or second someone.

The King beneath the mountains,
The King of carven stone,
The lord of silver fountains
Shall come into his own!

His crown shall be upholden,
His harp shall be restrung,
His halls shall echo golden
To songs of yore re-sung.

The woods shall wave on mountains
And grass beneath the sun;
His wealth shall flow in fountains
And the rivers golden run.

The streams shall run in gladness,
The lakes shall shine and burn,
All sorrow fail and sadness
At the Mountain-king's return!
Out of doubt, out of dark to the day's rising
I came singing in the sun, sword unsheathing.
To hope's end I rode and to heart's breaking:
Now for wrath, now for ruin and a red nightfall!

Here are the previous rounds, in case you'd like to have a look:
Hurt and Heal I (characters, winner: Boromir)
Hurt and Heal II (Silmarillion characters, winner: Maedhros)
Hurt and Heal III (characters, winner: Faramir)
Hurt and Heal IV (hobbits, winner: Farmer Maggot)
Hurt and Heal V (Ainur/non-Valar, winner: Melian)
Hurt and Heal VI (weapons and other oddities, winner: Gurthang)
Hurt and Heal VII (dwarves, winner: Gimli)
Hurt and Heal VIII (elves, winner: Maedhros)
Hurt and Heal IX (ladies, winner: Thuringwethil after a very long suspense)
Hurt and Heal X (geography, winner: Hollin)
He bit me, and I was not gentle.
