First Light



With webs of darkness, and his jealous deceit
In Arda, anguished cries of the Valar did greet
Vapors of blackness by her made complete

The light is void, now only silence and dread
Telperion and sister Laurelin, drained, now dead
Ungoliant insatiable, Melkor betrayer, invisible they fled

His horn Valaroma was winded and Orome did cry,
“To battle”, and leaping upon the mighty Nahar did fly
Sparks and flames from hoof gave new light to the sky
