1. Lairë Aurolorë

Like a combatant, she battles for the sky

Against the legions of the moon and his stars

She conjures a shade, waiting for the gloom to die

Walking gingerly through the clouds, her light as golden bars


Dubious demure indilëa sway

Casting fragrant scents

All diminishing away

Flower petals in the wind accents


Melodies of the lomelindë playing

Peeking through the leaves

Their voices relaying

Let our song reach the breeze


Mirrored reflections on a lake

Silver fishes gleaming

Cascade gracefully in our wake

Translucency it's meaning


Fair people of the celestial bodies

In the warmth of the luminary

Faces fair as fairies

Wine light and airy


Author's Notes:

1. The use of abstract imagery in this poem, like in many others, is most important. In this one, it depicts the rising of the Sun and the effect it brings on Arda.

2. Indilëa=plural form of indil 'lily'

3. Lomelindë=Nightingale or rather 'singer of the twilight'

4. Lairë Aurolorë=Summer Daydream
