The Eyes Of The White Tower
Howard Shore Lyrics


THE DEATH OF BOROMIR
text by PHILIPPA BOYENS, translation by DAVID SALO
( QUENYA )

I alda helda, I ehtele lína.
Manna lelyalye Voromírë?
Cánalya hlarula, la hirimmel
Fuinë lanta Pelendoro nandesse.
Sí massë I Anar?
(( The tree is bare, the fountain still.
Whither goest thou Boromir?
We heard your call, but cannot find you
Darkness falls upon the vale of Pelennor.
Where now is the Sun? ))

skekSo the Emperor

"Perhaps you come to explain this. Perhaps you come to tell me why my son is dead".

skekSo the Emperor

''They guard it because they have hope. A faint and fading hope, that one day it will flower. A King will come, and this city will be as it once was. Before it fell into decay. The old wisdom born out of the West was forsaken. Kings made tombs more splendid than the houses of the living, and counted the names of their descent dearer than the names of their sons. Childless lords sat in aged halls, musing on heraldry, or in high cold towers asking questions of the stars. And so, the people of Gondor fell into ruin. The line of Kings failed. The White Tree withered. The rule of Gondor was given over to lesser men.''

@David Knight Although medieval feudalism wasn't exactly a barrel of laughs, either, with all the infighting - off of each other.

Amazing writing from Tolkien

Beautiful but yet sad, living in England i see many similarities to this country today
