14. The Field of Cormallen

The West still withstood the waves of darkness
eagles heralded the hour of doom
stormwinds scattered the Shadow's grasp
Ringbearers fell wreathed in fire
engulfed in torment of earth's re-forging.
In Gondor's garden graceful Ithilien
sweet air breathed life after ash's choking
falling waters wakened the dead
healed beyond hope by the hand of the King.
Spring-turf mound now served as throne
yet he knelt before them bareheaded
bade all praise the Pheriannath.
This flame-flower ring fellowship renewed.
Overflowing with gladness the Great River bore them
back from the Gate of blackest despair
to May's blossoming City at Sun's rising.

Author's note:The Field of Cormallen means 'golden circle' and was named for the culumalda trees that grew there.
