Legolas Greenleaf, Prince of the Silvan Elves

O! Legolas, Prince Viherlehti
how long you have been away
Journeying far over mount and plain
when will you return? I cannot say

O! Legolas, Greenleaf long under tree,
I have sought you out through every land to the sea
Though long I have been away from home
though not half as long as thee

O! Legolas, my only love
fairest of hair and face
Your errands keep you long but soon
I hope you shall return in haste

O! Legolas, lover of song
the world is grey without thee
For no sound of water is sweeter than your voice
pray do not return the call of the sea
