Lament for Gandalf (known as Mithrandir to the elves of Lothlorien)

A Olorin i yaresse
--Olorin, who once was...
Mentener i Numeherui
--Sent by the Lords of the West
Tirien i Romenori
--To guard the lands of the East
Maiaron i Oiosaila
--Wisest of all Maiar
Manan elye etevanne
--What drove you to leave
Norie i melanelye?
--That which you loved?

Mithrandir, Mithrandir, A Randir Vithren
--Mithrandir, Mithrandir O Pilgrim Grey
u-reniathach i amar galen
--No more will you wander the green fields of this earth
I reniad lin ne mor, nuithannen
--Your journey has ended in darkness.
In gwidh ristennin, i fae narchannen
--The bonds cut, the spirit broken
I lach Anor ed ardhon gwannen
--The flame of Arnor has left this World
Caled veleg, ethuiannen.
--A great light has gone out.
