14. The Field of Cormallen
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.
