The Mirror of Galadriel

LotR Object: Galadriel's mirror in Lorien

A silver basin
Filled with water bright
Sparkling and shining
In the moonlit night.

Into the mirror of water
You may have a glance
You might see your future
Or the past perchance.

What in the water you will see
No one can ever tell
It is just an elven mirror
And not a wishing well.

Things fair and evil
Whatever you will see
Far away in space or time
May have been or is yet to be.
