1. Es ist ein Ross entsprungen

Es ist ein Ross entsprungen

(A carol from Rohan)

Es ist ein Ross entsprungen
Aus einer Koppel zart.
Wie uns die Alten sungen
Von Éorl kam die Art.
Und hat ein Fohlen bracht
Mitten im kalten Winter,
Wohl zu der halben Nacht.

Das Fohlen das ich meine,
Davon uns Tolkien sagt
Ist Schattenfell der Kleine
Der uns den Zaub'rer bracht.
Aus Erus ewgem Rat
Hat er ihn hergetragen
Wohl durch die tiefe Nacht.


(Schattenfell = Shadowfax)
