Elrond's Legion

- On'ono Laivindur
Golden shields they carry in their hands,
With emblems of pale silver;
With glittering blue swords,
With mighty stout horns.

In well-devised battle array,
Ahead of their brave leader;
They march amid blue spears,
Pale-visaged,long-haired bands.

They scatter the battalions of the foe,
They ravage every land they attack,
Splendidly they march to combat,
A swift, distinguished, avenging host!

No wonder though their strengh be great:
Sons of queens and kings are one and all;
On their heads are
Beautiful golden-yellow manes.

With smooth comely bodies,
With bright blue-starred eyes,
With pure crystal teeth,
With thin red lips.

Good they are at Orc-slaying,
Melodious in the ale-house,
Masterly at making songs,
Skilled in bow and shaft.
