1. poem in English and Sindarin Elvish

Song of the Night

A pale crescent moon shines in the West.
The summer night calls to my heart,
“Come and sing with me!”

The brilliant stars are scattered
Across the dome of heaven -
White glittering jewels!

I listen to the river-song.
With the song of the night, I am one,
And my heart is at peace.

Glîr Uin Dú

Cúran ‘ael síla dún.
I dhú laer cân na ‘uren,
Tolo a gliro ah nin!

In elenath gelair peliannin
Thar i delu e-menel
Miriath hilivren!

Laston i hirlinn.
Na ‘lîr uin dú erthannen im,
A guren na idh.
