Poetry in Quenya, the 1st full language in J.R.R. Tolkien's incredible legendarium

Lindë ana i Eleni

Sing to the Stars

The first poem that I wrote in Quenya, the first language of Arda from J.R.R. Tolkien's Legendarium.

It is about inspiration drawn from the brightest stars.

The Surging Sea

I Ëar Falastala

This one is about the Sea and it's unpredictable might. But also of its bounty and calm demeanor.

Mostly, though, it is about change.

Alasta

Growth

Of the forests and fields. Flowers and mushrooms run rampant across the world, filling it with a fragrance and fecundity. Through loam and brush, reaching up like trees and ferns.

Umbar

Doom

The Rising Wind

I Órë Súrë

This poem is about determination.

About the power that could be found from within and from without.

About finding something to push you onwards and upwards.

Resilient Mountain

Orontinorna

Hold fast, like a steady, great stone.

More than a hill, reaching up to the sky. This one is about being tough. Being like a mountain. Enduring, everlasting.

Fairë

Free

A short poem about freedom in the form of a haiku. The sense of liberation one gets from literally running in the wilderness is not something that can be ignored.

Doom, the end, the future.

Not malevolent, but inevitable.

What lies beyond is beyond what lies behind. None know, save the judge.

"One such Spark, but a mere fraction of Order, became the source for all we know upon Okeanós. While spinning and soaring through the many violent tendrils of Chaos, this particular Spark willed for it to stop; for the madness and rushing of void mixed with explosions of light to cease. So it forced the chaotic clouds around itself to shift into a pattern. It gave reason and rhythm to the matter and energy, previously untamed, until the void and light coarsed together, in harmony, at the weaving will of this Spark. Near the bottom of the page sharing this information, it is mentioned that there was a ‘God’ who had succumbed to a Chaos-stricken madness following the learning of these details. How they transferred the information, and what became of them, is not mentioned until the reference section, which I shall get to a bit later, as they warrant explanation as well..."
