shoot

I tried to type out the poems/songs but it didn't seem to work. They are on the first few pages of The Passage of the Marshes if you want to see them formatted correctly.

Re: Strange that no one has thought of it before...


Three Rings for the Elven Kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them,
In the land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

Re: Strange that no one has thought of it before...

Has anyone made up music for the Rhyme of the Rings (I don't know what else to call it!) If so, could I please get a transcription of it, and if not, anyone up to see if I can compose it?

I haven't heard the Ring Inscription poem set to music and would be very interested to hear what you could create to go along with it.!!

Re: Strange that no one has thought of it before...

Theres an austrian black metal band called &quot;Summoning&quot; .
they have 5 albums called &quot;lugburz&quot; &quot;Minas Morgul&quot; , &quot;Dol Guldur&quot; , &quot;nightshade forests&quot; and &quot;stronghold&quot;
u cant understand the lyrics very well but i discovered that they use many poems by tolkien ie the curse of the barrow wight and the &quot;three rings ...&quot; poem
i think u can get them via Napster but its difficult to find people who got the songs on mp3

Re: Strange that no one has thought of it before...

Hail! (Servus Balin!)
My favourite song clearly is the stave-poem prophecy of Malbeth the Seer (Over the land there lies a long shadow...). I like the Summoning adaption in &quot;Unto a long glory&quot; for the same reason.

Re: Strange that no one has thought of it before...

Exactly.
Yes, I am from Augsburg, Germany.
Kōr is amazing, but not the only great one. Dol Guldur especially is superb - the intro (Angbands Schmieden - the Smithies of Angband) alone is pure evil, a perfect setting of those pits, with the haunting chants, hammer strikes... and then Nightshade Forests... and Khazad-Dūm, with so elegiac keyboards...and Kōr... and the solemn Unto A Long Glory...
Summoning are especially great when they not only try to make good music, but attempt to really make a ME-soundtrack...like the keys on &quot;Mirkwood&quot; which sound like birds, or the clashing swords on the fantastic climax of &quot;Flesh and Blood&quot;...
&quot;Rivendell&quot; is also a good band which goes in the same direction.

If you mean &quot;elvish&quot;, yeah thats right. I like many listed here. But one's missing. &quot;The Man in the Moon Came Down Too Soon.&quot; Try reciting it fast.

--Mithadan--
"The Silmarils with living light
were kindled clear, and waxing bright
shone like stars that in the North
above the reek of earth leap forth." </p>

To the Sea, to the Sea! The white gulls are crying,
The wind is blowing, and the white foam is flying.
West, west away, the round sun is falling.
Grey ship, grey ship, do you hear them calling,
The voices of my people that have gone before me?
I will leave, I will leave the woods that bore me;
For our days are ending and our years failing.
I will pass the wide waters lonely sailing.
Long are the waves on the Last Shore falling,
Sweet are the voices in the Lost Isle calling,
In Eressea, in Elvenhome that no man can discover,
Where the leaves fall not: land of my people for ever!'

Who actually cares what I think? It's outrageous to actually think that anything I say is of importance and contains substance that may benefit anyone within the limited confines of the universe. I'm just ignored everywhere I go, I'm very desperate for someone to recognize me and befriend me. I... just need some companionship...

No, Far, don't be down

Actually we, all of us, are here to listen to what you have to say. Don't you say you are ignored everyway you go. I'm sure there are people to be fond of you, or even in love with you, even if you know that not. Ring of Solomon bore an inscription: it soon will pass

All passes, and life is often coloured like kind of a zebra - with black an white stripes, but black ones are narrower. All will turn to good, cheer up

Thank you HerenIstarion for your comforting words, you seem to be a rather enjoyable person, but those words aren't meant for me. If the zebra example is still fair game then the zebra of my life is all black with white stripes. You have convinced me enough to share my favorite poem with you, you all.

Aragorn reciteth:

Where now the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing?
Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?
Where is the hand on the harpstring, and the red fire glowing?
Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing?
They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow;
The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow.
Who shall gather the smoke of the dead wood burning, Or behold the flowing years from the Sea returning?

How about:

Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or secret gate;
And thought I oft have passed them by,
A day will come at last when I
Shall take the hidden paths that run
West of the Moon, East of the Sun.

I've always liked that one.

I'd have to agree with Faramir and say that the 'Lament for Eorl the Young' is my absolute favourite. But I always like the Earendil song that Bilbo made in Rivendell.

1420! cheer up, Faramir

Roads go ever ever on
Over rock and under tree
By caves where never sun has shone
By streams that never find the sea
Over snow by winter sown
and through the merry flowers of june
Over grass and over stone
And under mountains in the moon

Roads go ever ever on
Under cloud and under star
Yet feet that wondering have gone
Turn at last to home afar
Eyes that fire and sword have seen
And horror in the halls of stone
Look at last on meadows-green
And trees and hills they ling have known

I love The Road goes ever ever on, Bilbo's Bath song, and the song Frodo sings about the inn!

" In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit . . . " That's where it all began.</p>

What about the Oliphaunt poem? And The Man in the Moon Stayed Up Too Late/Came Down Too Soon? (I'm sure someone's mentioned those already, but oh well.)

Does anyone know of any books of Tolkien poetry other than The Adventures of Tom Bombadil?

Great Oiliphants! I forgot all about that Zoe! Sam recited many wonderful poems didn't he? His troll one was excellent!

Well Zoe beat me to it. I like the Oliphants poem. And the joy that follows it when Sam actually comes face to face with the Southern elephant.

One that always really moves me

Through Rohan over fen and field where the long grass grows
The West Wind comes walking, and about the walls it goes
' What news from the west, O wandering wind, do you bring to me tonight?
Have you seen Boromir the Tall by moon or by starlight?'
' I saw him rider over seven streams, over waters wide and grey;
I saw him walk in empty lands, until he passed away
Into the shadows of the North. I saw him then no more.
The North Wind may have heard the horn of the son of Denethor'
'Oh Boromir! From the high walls westward I looked afar,
But you came not from the empty lands where no men are.'

ASO *sniff* *sniff*

And he that breaks a thing to find out what it is has left the path of wisdom</p>

You know, I found all the titles to the poems and songs, The Road goes ever ever on is actually, The Old Walking Song.
Bilbo's Bath Song is just the Bath Song
But I'll have to look up the inn one.
Ah, Bilbo's Song, the one about wishing to be spared, I almost cried. And Sam's song that he sings in the Tower at the edge of Mordor.

In western lands beneath the Sun
the flowers may rise in Spring,
the trees may bud, the waters run,
the merry finches sing.
Or there maybe 'tis cloudless night
and swaying beeches bear
the Elven-satrs as jewels white
amid their branching hair.

Though here at journey's end I lie
in darkness buried deep,
beyond all towers stong and high,
beyond all mountains steep,
above all shadows rides the Sun
and Stars for ever dwell:
I will not say the Day is done,
nor bid the Stars farewell.

It's so sad <img src=frown.gif ALT=""> and yet so beautiful <img src=smile.gif ALT="">
If you know what I mean <img src=wink.gif ALT="">

I like "Bilbo's Bath Song", "The Merry Old Inn", the song the dwarves sing in The Hobbit, and the other dwarf song about smashing the plates, 'cause that's what Bilbo Baggins hates!
