1. Sirion

We have taken our dead
to the sea;
we have tendered them.

We have thrown lilies
in the pools,
on the white rock
and the red rock.

The sand is barred
with clouds;
the clouds are long;
our hands are spent.

We have given our dead
to the sea,
and our living;

beyond the churned mud
of the estuary
the waves are swift spear-points.

We have given our dead
to the sea,
and we go
many miles
to find water.
