Rhyme of Lore – A Sindarin Translation

by Jan 10, 2003Poetry

I decided to translate this rhyme for a bit of practice… enjoy!

Narn en-Angol
Cîr dynd ah erain dynd
neled, neled, a neled ad.
Man tyngir o dôr dhannen
or-aear hiriol?
Geil odog a sern odog
a galadh hilivren vîn.

Literal translation back to English:
Tall ships and tall kings,
three, three and three again.
What did they bring from the fallen land
over the flowing sea?
Seven stars and seven stones,
and one shimmering white tree.

Original rhyme:
Tall ships and tall kings,
Three times three.
What brought they from the foudnered land,
over the flowing sea?
Seven stars and seven stones,
and one white tree.
