24. Ioreth Healer

Author's note:
Sung in Gondor, based on “Eleanor Rigby,” by the Beatles.

*******

Ah, listen to the joyful people
Ah, listen to the joyful people

Ioreth Healer says that the hands of a king show his power to heal,
Makes an appeal.
Bustles in cool halls, chattering now of the legends she knows,
What are they for?
All the joyful people, what makes them all so glad?
All the joyful people, will no one now be sad?

Strider Elessar, coming to serve as a healer in all namelessness,
Clearing the mess.
With sweet galenas, bringing a breath of fresh air ‘gainst the Nazgûl’s Black Breath
Save them from death.
All the joyful people, what makes them all so glad?
All the joyful people, will no one now be sad?

Ah, listen to the joyful people
Ah, listen to the joyful people

Ioreth Healer talks to her cousin of healing and herblore and kings,
And suchlike things.
Strider Elessar enters the city to cheers and the hope of all men.
“A king again!”
All the joyful people, what makes them all so glad?
All the joyful people, will no one now be sad?
