Bright Ship

- Mrs. Frodo


Bright ship that bears the Bearer hence
Which saw the dawn of Wizard-kind
Afire with Aman’s radiance--

No cant or mystic hidden fence
or trick of sight or sound or mind,
bright ship that bears the Bearer hence,

shall hinder him in going thence.
True peace and healing he will find,
afire with Aman’s radiance.

With Elf’s serene benevolence
tend gently him by sorrow signed,
bright ship that bears the Bearer hence.

On then! Pain-shadowed countenance
the Blest One shall leave far behind,
afire with Aman’s radiance,

and healed, restored in every sense,
recall with joy thy role assigned,
bright ship that bears the Bearer hence,
afire with Aman’s radiance.
