I sang of leaves, of leaves of gold, and leaves of gold there grew:
Of wind I sang, a wind there came and in the branches blew.
Beyond the Sun, beyond the Moon, the foam was on the Sea,
And by the strand of Ilmarin there grew a golden Tree.
Beneath the stars of Ever-eve in Eldamar it shone,
In Eldamar beside the walls of Elven Tirion.
There long the golden leaves have grown upon the branching years,
While here beyond the Sundering Seas now fall the Elven Tears.
O Lorien! The Winter comes, the bare and leafless Day;
The leaves are falling in the stream, the River flows away.
O Lorien! Too long I have dwelt upon this Hither Shore
And in a fading crown have twined the golden elanor.
But if of ships I now should sing,what ship would come to me,
What ship would bear me ever back across so wide a Sea?
J R R Tolkien
I HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR VISIT
FEELING THE MAGIC AND WONDER
PLEASE COME BACK SOON AND DROP
ME A LINE TO
LET ME KNOW HOW YOU FELT OR
IF YOU HAVE ANY
SUGGESTIONS TO IMPROVE OR ADD
TO MY FAERIELAND!
My most beloved friend Corky composed this poem,
please come along with her and I as faeries spread their wings in:
Deep inside the crystal forest
Where many fear to go
Is a place of peace and harmony
Where the springs of eternity flow.
This is where the faeries live
And pass away the hours
Dancing thru the trees,
Playing in the flowers.
Faeries flitting on gossamer wings
Is a common sight
Their wings of rainbow colors
Unfold,quietly taking flight.
Come and take the journey
To find your child within
Open up your heart and mind
And watch the magic begin.
