The War of Wrath

Though Earendil’s star did brightly shown
Melkor’s victory and his conquest done
The redemption of all in a War of renown

By Earendil’s flight was there much to atone
For Middle Earth had Morgoth all but won
Though Earendil’s star did brightly shown

The Peoples of the land had much to bemoan
Chaos and darkness had made the world to shun
The redemption of all in a War of renown

The Winds of War yet stir in the unknown
Melkor cannot avoid his fate and run
Though Earendil’s star did brightly shown

The Valar relent, an Enemy to dethrone
The armies amassing, War has begun
The redemption of all in a War of renown

A War of Wrath is swift, the Trumpets are blown
Eonwe the Herald brings Melkor undone
Though Earendil’s star did brightly shown
The redemption of all in a War of renown

For my Master & Mistress - Manwë & Varda


Two wise and just rulers for the Wind and the Light
Taniquetil is their abode, the lofty peak on Ilmarin Hill
The great Aratar, they aid any in need and their plight

They watch for Melkor, keeping his realm in sight
The dews of the Two Trees, the stars have their just fill
Two wise and just rulers for the Wind and the Light

They watch for the First Born, the Elves with eyes bright
Yet Melkor darkens some, corrupting immortal skill
The great Aratar, they aid any in need and their plight

Telperion and Laurelin destroyed, they grieve at the sight
Yet Varda hath the Silmarils hallowed, a destiny to fulfill
Two wise and just rulers for the Wind and the Light

The Sun and Moon they instruct the Maia and their flight
Arien and Tilion guide them; the earth shines they instill
The great Aratar, they aid any in need and their plight

With Melkor taken , peace is offered to grant respite
The Earendil star burning aloft, through Varda’s will
Two wise and just rulers for the Wind and the Light
The great Aratar, they aid any in need and their plight
