4. Envy: The Sin of Elros
And dwell no more with them?
For you envy the Aftercomers their Doom
And would share in it.
It was a gift of the One to his children,
And as a blessing you behold it
Though you were born to ever-life.
Bound to Arda you will not be,
For you seek new horizons;
That is their gift, as you perceive it.
So share in that which you envy so
And see Vardamir share it also
And all your heirs after;
For the Doom of Man is upon all your line
As blessing or as curse.
