Elessar Was A Mighty King

(The Lay of Gil-Galad revisted for Aragorn)

- Elvellon Ringsbane
So sing the minstrels of Gondor…


Elessar was a mighty king
Of him the harpers gladly sing,
He who renewed lands fair and free
Between the mountains and the sea.

His sword was long, his glance was keen,
His banner black afar was seen
The seven stars of Gondor’s shield
Were mirrored on its sable field.

Not long ago he road this way
And now he dwelleth here to stay
For out of darkness rose his star,
From Mordor, where no shadows are.
