At Théoden’s Death
Original English by J. R. R. Tolkien
Avo nínio1 hí! Beleg i ben dhannen,
Maer i vethed dîn. Ir i gum dîn orthannen,
Biss níniar. Auth cân hi ammen!
Mourn not overmuch! Mighty was the fallen,
Met was his ending. When his mound is raised,
Women then shall weep. War now calls us!
I used the Gondorian dialect (note the errors in mutation) because this is a poem for and about humans.
