1. The way thru Helkaraxe

Farewell, you Elves of Light! Your light was killed,

We need this stained name no more,

And Noldor ought to forge a skill to live -

The most reliable weapon in the world.

Indeed, o brother, we will ever keep

In mind your treason. If the peaky crags

Beside the coast do not point their steep

And steely blades into my people's breast,

And if the twins of Tintalle' stars,

The wintry stars of blizzard, ice and snow,

Do not become, sparkling near and far,

The bed of our long-wished home,

We won't forget forever dazzling blaze

Of both the baneful Suns, which charred the souls

Of people, freezing in the fastest chase

For glory, vengeance, life - or deathly dole.

So come, at last, day I am waiting for,

When pain of mine will fade! And as I feel it,

I'll say: "Valar forgive you, Feanor,

Burnt in the inner fire Flaming Spirit!"
