Camlost it is, by way of cam-shaft. "Farewell, sweet earth and northern sky" etc is the song I was thinking of.

MAGLOR - Of the fall, mad glory is his, but the day neither begins nor ends.
ULMO - You run of four, less nitrogen upon the horn.
SAM - In the tower, the same without the most common.
IVARE - The weaver's eye is forward for the most magical, beside the sea.
CAMLOST - That which sits upon the shaft is missing nigh to Angband.

(He joins the likes of Turin and Beleg in not being generally musical, but having one notable performance in the Great Tales. Surprisingly, I don't think Tuor gets one.)

And we're done! Sorry it was a bit all over the place, I'm not really with it this... month? Season? Half of the year? I don't even know.

Over to you, Pervinca, and well done.
