4. Nostalindë

Come to this world

Glorious child

In joy we greet you

Cheerily sing

Nothing so perfect

Stands on this earth

You bring us joy

Oh innocent elfling

Shining so bright

Newborn little one

Your smile is a treasure

Worth a fortune


Come to this world

Fragile and frail

What deep secrets

Could you unveil?

Your eyes so wise

Yet new and clear

Filled with wonder

Not tainted yet by fear

Eru's little creation

Born from a dream

Of the shining sun

You are a dream


Come to this world

To laugh or to cry

Growing and learning

As summers go by

Seasons will change

So will your heart

Soon you'll forget

Where you did start

Innocence lost

Bitter fruits reap

But for now love

Be blessed and sleep
