The Stars of the Elves – A Poem about the Magical Elves

The Magical Elves

When they were awoken the Quendi
The stars were the first things they did see
The Elves best loved starlight
Always enjoying stars that shine bright

One famous star was Erendil
It was given to Frodo by Galadriel
Galadriel as the morning fair
Her hair as golden and woven silver

The Elves could only be slain
Die of a broken heart or great pain
Light always dwelt on their face
Their skin soft as silk or lace

In the Undying Lands beyond the Seas
Lies Eldemar their home far from the Valar Trees
The Elves built cities with streets of gold
Opals diamonds and crystals they did hold

Tales speak of an elf fairest of all
Her name was Luthien daughter of Thingol
Luthien fell in love with a mortal man
She gave up her immortality and took Beren’s hand

Two others were also like this
Who lived together in happy bliss
Arwen was the beautiful elf’s name
Aragorn the King who won great fame

Elrond was another who dwelt in Rivendell
His daughter was Arwen granddaughter of Galadriel
Elrond who fought in the War of the Ring
Elrond of whom many tales often sing

Celeborn who parted for the Sea
Was the one who did marry
The famous fair Elf seen
Galadriel fair as the morning

Legolas another elf who was Prince of Mirkwood
Friend of Gimli the dwarf who saw the Golden Wood
Legolas journeyed with the Fellowship and Frodo
Legolas a perfect expert with arrows and a bow

The Elves immortal were so young and so old
Never knew sickness or death so cold
The Elves were wisest of all beings
Best at speech poetry and singing

Elves had about them a wonderful glow
From them happiness and sorrow did flow
The Elves with their precious stars
The Quendi were magical and miraculous by far

There was always light on their fair face
Sorrowful and happy than any other race
They have gone from us we miss them constantly
They will live on in our hearts eternally
