_Arda ilvanya_

Nu laire-vilya calima
né nurtaina ambo súmasse
emma Ardo vanwa ar írima.

Urulaste ar hraicénima -
ananta sinten - anes tasse
nu laire-vilya calima.

Lótelion liltie vórima
úfane hendunyanta i lisse
emmo Ardo vanwa ar írima.

Sossenca imíca farme férima
ve arquen caine nessa arasse
nu laire-vilya calima.

Raine ar vánie waltaner i síma
panyala oiave endanyasse
nu laire-vilya nísima
emma Ardo ilvanya ar írima.

_Arda unmarred_

No one would know that it was there
were it not for some ripples in the lea
and not a breeze the blame to bear.

Far from the shelter of shrub and tree,
waited on by mallow and meadowsweet,
it feasted there like a Roman grandee.

The slender muzzle of the young doe
plucked choosily from the grassy mere,
oblivious of watchers close - friend or foe.

While the sun trailed off into the fragrant eve,
all at once the place was graced with an air
of Arda unmarred - sweet, but, oh so brief.
