(ŠIbn Ghalad 2005)
Upon the hearth the fire is red,
Beneath the roof there is a bed
But not yet weary are our feet,
Still round the corner we may meet
A sudden tree or standing stone
That none have seen but we alone.
Tree and flower and leaf and grass,
Let them pass! let them pass!
Hill and water under sky,
Pass them by! Pass them by!
Gilthoniel! O Elbereth!
Clear are thy eyes and bright thy breath!
Snow-white! Snow-white! We sing to thee!
In a far land beyond the sea.
Still round the corner
There may wait a new road or a secret gate,
And though we pass them by today,
Tomorrow we may come this way
And take the hidden paths that run
towards the moon or to the sun.
Apple, thorn and nut and sloe,
Let them go! Let them go!
Sand and stone and pool and dell,
Fare you well! Fare you well!
O stars that in the sunless year
With shining hands by her were sown
In windy fields now bright and clear
We see your silver blossom blown!
Home is behind, the world ahead,
And there are many paths to tread
Through shadows to the edge of night
Until the stars are all alight.
Then world behind and home ahead,
We'll wander back to home and bed.
Mist and twilight, cloud and shade,
Away shall fade! Away shall fade!
Fire and lamp, meat and bread,
And then to bed! And then to bed!
O Elbereth! Gilthoniel!
We still remember, we who dwell
In this far land beneath the trees
Thy starlight on the western seas.
A! Elbereth Gilthoniel!
Silivren Penna Miriel
O Menel Algar Elenath
Gilthoniel, A! Elbereth!
