Gimli’s Lament
A trysting cup lies forever untouched
Near a thread of gold in crystal
Pure as a star in the early dawn
Pure as the love of troubadours’ songs.
Say goodbye, say goodbye For now you must fly You must fly from ‘Lorien
East is burdened with future sorrows
West is where my true hurt lies
Where the bittersweet memory burns.
Say goodbye to 'Lorien
Say goodbye to 'Lorien
From our lady, you must fly
Don’t say where, nor say why
My axe will sing for you and yours
Cleaving a path from mountain to wood
For a golden thread in crystal In the west, where my true hurt lies.
The world has turned from 'Lorien
No home for elves in a world of men Goodbye, goodbye - from Imraldris we fly
So say goodbye to 'Lorien – to Lorien
