Lothlorien – doomed to fade away

by Mar 7, 2003Poetry

Amid the mallorns of the wood
there dwells one of the Three.
Enchanting, sorrowful in mood
it will soon cease to be.
The power of the Elves will fade.
It is Lothlorien’s doom:
Whether the One is found/unmade
no living leaf will loom
once more upon this land so fair
where in the times of spring
gold is the ground – a dragon’s lair
where elven voices sing.
And yet no more shalt thou behold
That Wonder of the West
For change shalt come upon the world –
Lothlorien will find rest.
