  • 2 Kortirion Among the Trees
  • 3 Flesh and Blood
  • 4 Habbanan Beneath the Stars
  • There was dancing and was ringing
    There were shadow-people singing
    Ancient songs of olden gods

    Old shadows linger in thine ancient gate
    Thy robe is grey, thine old heart now is still
    Thy robe is grey, thine old heart now is still
    Thy towers silent in the mist await
    Their crumbling end, while through the elms
    The Gliding Water leaves these inland realms
    And slips between long meadows to the Sea

    There was dancing and was ringing
    There were shadow-people singing
    Old shadows linger in thine ancient gate
    Thy robe is grey
    Thy robe is grey

    Thou art the inmost province of the fading isle
    Where linger yet the Lonely Companies;
    Kortirion, I will meet the winter here

    Thy towers silent in the mist await
    Their crumbling end, while through the elms
    The Gliding water leaves these inland realms
    And slips between long meadows to the Sea

    There was dancing and was ringing
    There were shadow-people singing
    Ancient songs of olden gods
    Old shadows linger in thine ancient gate
    Thy robe is grey, thine old heart now is still

    Kortirion, I will meet the winter here, and conquer you
