Elvenhome Quotes

Various Elvenhome Quotes from J.R.R. Tolkien

We look towards Numenor that was, and beyond to Elvenhome that is, and to that which is beyond Elvenhome and will ever be.

He saw the Mountain silent rise
where twilight lies upon the knees
of Valinor, and Eldamar
beheld afar beyond the seas.
A wanderer escaped from night
to haven white he came at last,
to Elvenhome the green and fair
where keen the air, where pale as glass
beneath the Hill of Ilmarin
a-glimmer in a valley sheer
the lamplit towers of Tirion
are mirrored on the Shadowmere.

I will leave, I will leave the woods that bore me;
For our days are ending and our years failing.
I will pass the wide waters lonely sailing.
Long are the waves on the Last Shore falling,
Sweet are the voices in the Last Isle calling,
In Eressea, in Elvenhome that no man can discover,
Where the leaves fall not: land of my people for ever

Enchantment healed his weary feet
  That over hills were doomed to roam;
And forth he hastend, strong and fleet
  And grasped at moonbeams glistening.
Through woven woods in Elvenhome
  She lightly fled on dancing feet
And left him lonely still to roam
  In the silent forest listening
