Like A Wind Blown Leaf

- Dinledhwen
A Last Elf Poem

Like a wind blown leaf I move through these woods
Drifting from place to place while I search
For a way to ease this loneliness I feel
Now that my kindred have left Middle-earth.

Like a wind blown leaf I move along this shore
Drifting through the flotsam washed up with the waves
All the while hoping to see the white sails
Of my kindred sailing back home for me.

Like a wind blown leaf I’m caught in this whirlwind
Drifting between my woodland and this shore
Forever trapped in this hopeless circle
The last of my kind here in Middle-earth.
