Laer Cú Beleg

Type: Songs & Stories

Meaning: The song of the Great Bow


An elegy composed by Túrin Turambar by the pools of Ivrin to honour his late friend, Beleg Cúthalion, whom he had slain:
Then Túrin knelt and drank from that water; and suddenly he cast himself down, and his tears were unloosed at last, and he was healed of his madness.

There he made a song for Beleg, and he named it Laer Cú Beleg, the Song of the Great Bow, singing it aloud heedless of peril.
