Reflections of an Elf

by May 10, 2005Poetry

In Arda I have labored
To make a better place
For those who follow later
Gifted with lesser grace.
Someday t’will be my turn
Across the sea to sail;
No more sorrow to learn
If my faith does not fail.
I’ll trust in Eru’s mercy
While I here remain.
But when I cross the great sea
It will not give me pain
To leave all I have worked for
And all I’ve grown to love;
This journey’s what I’ve longed for
And nothing else above.
