Lay of the Gold and Silver

by Nov 20, 2003Poetry

Laurelin, Tree of Gold
Telperion the White
Greatest creations of old
Blessing the land with light

Born of Yavanna’s song
and Nienna’s hushed tears
before shadows were long
In a time with no fears

Long in bliss lived these twain
Yet Darkness watched ever
Malice pured forth like rain
Life he sought to sever

With the spider’s power
Morgoth came, cloaked in night
The Two Trees they did scour
Destroying splender bright

Beauty akin would appear nevermore
to that of the Two Trees of Valinor
