1. Song of The Noldo

We were wanderers, whale-road travellers,

Searching sea drifts, seeking landfall.

White wave-rider washed by salt-spray,

Boreal borne by billowed sea-foam.

Dawning day's-eye directs our way,

Silvery stars span skies of night-black.

Whirling winds-breath whips about us,

Cloud-tears coldly cloaking tired limbs.

Did they depart deeply sighing?

Will they wait there watching for us?

Contrite kin-slayers, crave acquittal.

Words wax woeful, wearied voyagers.

Nightly now we kneel in wonder,

Spark strewn star-field stretched above us.

Varda star-veiled, vouchsafe our plea,

Hear us, help us, hasten westward.

Star-Kindler, I want to come home.
