1. East Wind

(based on the 'Lament for Boromir' by J.R.R. Tolkien)

From mountains dark and coasts forlorn the East Wind ever flies
And whispering in silent lands it seeks to spread its lies.

No news from the East, o treacherous wind, I ask of you at dawn,
No news of him who's long been lost, whose loss I'll ever mourn.
I will not hear your poisoned words, your visions I won't see,
Begone, foul wind, your deadly breath won't dim my memory
Of him who fought the night alone to see our hope reborn,
Of him who with his dying breath redeemed a vow forsworn.

O Boromir, you won't return from North, from South or West,
but Boromir, where'er you walk eternally be blessed.
