1. The River Daughter

Quenya Translation:

Mi olórë vantas,
Fassë alcarinqua ve Anar,
Linderya tyalin sírë-caima ondonnar,
Collarya laurello nar carna.
Ve aurë ahya minna lómë,
Venya nénanna,
Nénu lutu,
Sírë lirin,
Laurëpiucca, Sírë-Yenden!


English Translation:

In a dream she walks,
Hair radiant as the sun,
Her melody plays on river-bed rocks,
Her clothes from gold are spun.
As day turns into night,
Upon the fragrant water,
The lilies float,
The river sings,
For Goldberry, River-Daughter!
