The lay of the three stones – a poem about the Silmarills

by Mar 31, 2003Poetry

One for the Earth,
And one for the sky,
And one for the deep, deep Sea
Where the foundered lands lie.
To be kept beyond mortal and immortal hands
Until the End claims all the lands.
Wrought of light and filled with sheen
Of silver Telperion and golden Lurelin.
One for the Earth,
And one for the sky,
And one for the deep, deep Sea
Where the foundered lands lie.
Made by the hands of Burning Soul
Whose heart was hot as smouldering coal.
The bane of Elves enslaved and free,
Keys to the Land beyond the Sea.
One for the Earth,
And one for the sky,
And one for the deep, deep Sea
Where the foundered lands lie
Three stones of light
Desired by the Fallen
By whose might
They were stolen.
But the work of Elvinesse of old
no evil, however great, could mar
And now, Riding a ship of silver and gold
A child of Men, baring a star,
Forever shows the Lost Road
To the Hallowed land of the Valar.
One for the Earth,
And one for the sky,
And one for the deep, deep Sea
Where the foundered lands lie…
Forever.
