1. Lairë Aurolorë
Against the legions of the moon and his stars
She conjures a shade, waiting for the gloom to die
Walking gingerly through the clouds, her light as golden bars
*~~*Dubious demure indilëa sway
Casting fragrant scents
All diminishing away
Flower petals in the wind accents
Melodies of the lomelindë playing
Peeking through the leaves
Their voices relaying
Let our song reach the breeze
*~~*Mirrored reflections on a lake
Silver fishes gleaming
Cascade gracefully in our wake
Translucency it's meaning
Fair people of the celestial bodies
In the warmth of the luminary
Faces fair as fairies
Wine light and airy
1. The use of abstract imagery in this poem, like in many others, is most important. In this one, it depicts the rising of the Sun and the effect it brings on Arda.
2. Indilëa=plural form of indil 'lily'
3. Lomelindë=Nightingale or rather 'singer of the twilight'
4. Lairë Aurolorë=Summer Daydream
