NAMÁRIË (HALDIR'S LAMENT)
text by J.R.R. TOLKIEN
( QUENYA )

Ai! Laurië lantar lassi súrinen
Yéni únótimë ve rámar aldaron!
Yéni ve lintë yuldar avánier
Mi oromardi lissë-mirubóreva
Andúnë pella, Vardo tellumar
Nu luini yassen tintilar i eleni
Ómaryo airetári-lírinen.

(( Ah! Like gold fall the leaves in the wind,
Long years numberless as the wings of trees!
The long years have passed like swift draughts
Of the sweet mead in lofty halls
Beyond the West, beneath the blue vaults of Varda
Wherein the stars tremble
In the voice of her song, holy and queenly. ))

Sí man i yulma nin enquantuva?
An sí Tintallë, Varda, Oiolossëo
Ve fanyar máryar Elentári ortanë
Ar ilyë tier undulávë lumbulë.
Ar sindanóriello caita morninë
I falmalinnar imbë met
Ar hísië untúpa Calaciryo míri oialë.
Sí vanwa ná, Rómello vanwa, Valimar!
Namárië! Nai hiruvalyë Valimar!
Nai elyë hiruva! Namárië!

(( Who now shall refill the cup for me?
For nor the Kindler, Varda, Queen of the Stars
From Mount Everwhite has uplifted her hands like clouds
And all paths are drowned deep in shadow.
And out of a grey country darkness lies
On the foaming waves between us
And mist covers the jewels of Calacirya for ever.
Now lost, lost to those of the East is Valimar!
Farewell! Maybe thou shalt find Valimar!
Maybe even thou shalt find it! Farewell! ))
