In FireLong ago these deeds were done,In Fire by MariaB9
These that now are sung.
Long ago, o'er hills of stone
Wrought his castle a mighty lord.
Valiant he was and tall
And by this known to all.
Fire dwelt in his hair red,
Foes before him fled.
Many a victory he gained
Yet bitter he was and pained;
For an Oath he did take,
A vow none should break.
When at last fulfilled it was,
Vain it was made as
The Holy Jewel his hand bit.
The blood of his kin was spilt.
Torment untold the jewel brought
Thus, in fire leapt the lord
Taking with him the Gem Fair,
His greatest desire and despair.
Sing, o harp, of heroes all!
And of the lord so tall,
Who upon so high a hill
Made a vow none can fulfill.
Seven seekersHow long here should we staySeven seekers by MariaB9
To grief and despair,
With our freedom taken away?
How long should we mourn,
The valiant Noldor?
Follow me and your steps be light
For I shall reveal to you a land,
Away from those of Morgoth's kin!
"Thou hast spoken."
In you I put my trust, sons of mine,
That you should bring back
The things which to me belong by right!
Now swear and to your Oath stay bound
Until the end of time
That no other hand would be laid
On the jewels so fair,
In which bright light still dwells.
To you we swear
That foe or friend,
Be he Elda or Man,
Or what else that walks seen in land,
Will find no mercy at our hand
Should he try to hold or keep
Your beloved Silmarils!
Valiant were the words spoken then,
But, vain, the Oath unfullfilled remained
For pain with pain is paid,
And the jewels burnt the hands
That blood of those of their own had shed.
KementariGold and silver are the lightsKementari by MariaB9
In your eyes,
Graceful are your steps
And your raiment ever green.
Wonder and beauty unseen
You put in everything that grows,
From the fairest leaf
To the merriest flower.
Blessed we all are
O, Queen of the Earth,
For through you we have
Fair trees and fields,
Loveliness before our eyes.
How many hurts your heart knew,
None can tell but only you
When the Great Light was gone
And there you sang alone.
Slow do the waters flow
Through lands and hills,
All enriched with the fairness you give
A, Yavanna Kementari!
The Path Shrouded in Mist and ShadowThe Path Shrouded in Mist and Shadow by Meisiluosi
A note on the names: We know that the names given in the legendarium are elven variations of the original names. I decided to let these people address each other in their own language:
Ylpang = Ulfang
Bör = Bór
Yldar = Uldor
Warning: I've allowed my inner philologist/culturologist/anthropologist to run a bit wild.
The wind from the West was sweeping through the plain. Chilly though it was, it was almost pleasant compared to the vicious bite of the howling winds that usually came from the North. It was winter still, but spring was already fast approaching, and the grasslands were like matted brass, wave upon wave of yellowish mass, rustling, sighing, stretching into the horizon.
A small gathering of men could be seen amid the ceaseless undulations, sombre and firm like a rocky island in the middle of a perturbed sea. Their horses grazed not far from them, and above their heads two large eagles circled in the sky.
They were tw

The Old Forest
"They picked a way among the trees, and their ponies plodded along, carefully avoiding the many writhing and interlacing roots. There was no undergrowth. The ground was rising steadily, and as they went forward it seemed that the trees became taller, darker, and thicker. There wa
