Re: Sindarin poems

And another tweak suggested ...

Udul he ad ne thrîw dregol
Linn dîn leithiant i ethuil
Sui tuilinn a rhoss dannol
A nen udul ed loss glavrol
Egenn tuiad niphredil
Na dail dîn, nestas aphadol
anírant lilthad na mrennil
Linnol am nadhras úbrestol


_ed_ == coming from

Re: Sindarin poems

Faster, kids, faster!  ;D * 6th verse - When winter passed, she came again, And her song released the sudden spring, Like rising lark, and falling rain, And melting water bubbling. He saw the elven-flowers spring About her feet, and healed again He longed by her to dance and sing Upon the grass untr...

Re: Sindarin poems

This may throw a spanner in the works.  ::) But as I read JRRT's English version, I thought it was Beren shivering, not the stars. I realize the punctuation and pronoun usage don't make it out that way, but that's still the way I read it it. (I still wouldn't choose "shuddering", but if my interpre...

Re: Sindarin poems

heyyyy that is cool!!! Thanks!
I've looked wide and far for something like "tremble" or "quiver" indeed, but this document I did not see. Where did you get that from?

Re: Sindarin poems

Ah thanks!
_Gir-_ which is used here, however, rather means 'to shudder' ie. the very physical meaning.  I consider it both too strong and too literal in meaning to use in this context - to apply it to stars.
I really like any suggestions though! The poplar one was very good.

Re: Sindarin poems

next verse in yella - as the changes :) ----- original by Tolkien ---- The leaves were long, the grass was green, The hemlock-umbels tall and fair, And in the glade a light was seen Of stars in shadow shimmering. Tinuviel was dancing there To music of a pipe unseen, And light of stars was in her hai...

Tolkien Ensemble Concert

Suilad, I had the luck of being able to go to a concert of the Tolkien Ensemble in Neuss, Germany - because my Sindarin study partner lives across the Rhine in Düsseldorf and she arranged the tickets. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QqcyuWHW9o It was great! They are musically very good - I think mos...

Minuial or Aman / Sunrise over Aman

I want to pick up my Valinor 3D scene project again and played a bit with something new in Blender: it can now simulate the atmosphere a lot better. So I rendered some images with the Sun at varying heights under and above the horizon, simulating a sunrise. Somehow I thought it fitting for the seaso...
