9. Away In Imladris

Sung by the Dúnedain, to the tune of 'Away in a Manger'

Away in Imladris
asleep in his bed,
The heir of Isildur
went where his dreams led;
Up high in the heavens
Eärendil flew
The heir of Isildur
did his hope renew.

The Elf folk are singing
they name him Estel;
The heir of Isildur
among them shall dwell.
We love thee, Dúnadan,
but must let you go
To be raised in safety
Far from our great foe.

Come to us, Dúnadan
remember your kin.
Your birthright is waiting
if battles you win.
From darkness deliver
with thy healing hands,
And lead the Dúnedain
in cleansing these lands.

Away in Imladris
asleep in his bed,
The heir of Isildur
went where his dreams led;
Up high in the heavens
Eärendil flew
The heir of Isildur
did his hope renew.

Here's a place for members to post one or two of the pieces they are most proud of.
Included because: All of my more promising poems are lying around unfinished at the moment, so I thought I'd include my first collection of carols instead. I'm proudest of "'Twas the Night Before Yuletide", but "Let It Blow!" is the most fun!
