In western lands beneath the Sun    the flowers may rise in Spring,     the trees may bud, the waters run,   the merry finches sing.      Or there maybe ‘tis cloudless night    and swaying beeches bear    the Elven-stars as jewels white    amid their branching hair.     Though here at journey’s end I lie    in darkness buried deep,    beyond all towers strong and high,    beyond all mountains steep,    above all shadows rides the Sun  and Stars for ever dwell:    I will not say the Day is done,    nor bid the Stars farewell.Painting by Alan Lee

In western lands beneath the Sun   
the flowers may rise in Spring,     
the trees may bud, the waters run,  
the merry finches sing.     
Or there maybe ‘tis cloudless night   
and swaying beeches bear   
the Elven-stars as jewels white   
amid their branching hair.    

Though here at journey’s end I lie   
in darkness buried deep,   
beyond all towers strong and high,   
beyond all mountains steep,   
above all shadows rides the Sun  
and Stars for ever dwell:   
I will not say the Day is done,   
nor bid the Stars farewell.
