Where I stood I do now lie – A Poem

by Mar 8, 2003Poetry

Where I stood I do now lie
Where I sang I do now cry
And where I danced I shall now sleep;
Leave me alone to weep, to weep.

Where I laughed I do now think
Where I was young I am now old
For my tale was heard, yet it was not told.
And as I sit beneath this sun
In my old home, in Lorien
I remember all thosr mortal years ago,
When my dream became my woe;
And I did laugh uopn that day,
When my love had said his lovers say,
We did talk among the elanor
Which wove its deep carpet upon the grass floor
And the trees did cast no shadow then upon my face,
As I lay with my love, and we did embrace
When the sun in the sky did fade to nights array
Of the starry halls, seen beyon the day
We did laugh.

But where I did stand I do now lie
And where I sang I do now cry
Where then I danced I shall now sleep;
Leave me alone to weep, to weep.
