8. The Veil

In Doriath before the sun
before the moon to sky had come
wove Lúthien her witchery
beneath the boughs of great beech trees

The thoughts of earth and wind she drew
and, hands to heaven, starlight's, too
And Maia-like in dance she vied
To bind the earth unto the sky

In one great whole, by dance sustained.
Where'er she passed, her vision reigned
Unbroken, boundless harmony
Veils the night beneath the trees.

The sun and moon made but misstep
She danced them into her spell-net
Until one came who, like lodestone,
Did show true north: the spell's undone.
