I saw her standing there
Clothed in white raiment
Her hair, an ebony river
Her eyes as sapphires
But more than this
I saw her heart
Shrouded in purity
Crowned with honor
Devotion and love
Welling from her depths

A Queen before the crown
A star from heaven
I thought her to be
Her heart unmarred
By the Shadow
And her grace undimmed

A silent gazer of all that passes
A gentle hand to all who hurt
The Queen of a nation
Her husband’s crown and glory
Her children’s rock and shield
Lady of faith
Daughter of Lords
Woman of quiet strength
Thus I beheld Arwen
Queen of Gondor
