Breath of Life

Voice Actor(s): Fiona Jallings

Source: The Two Towers Lyrics

Uich gwennen na ‘wanath ah na dhín.
An uich gwennen na ringyrn ambar hen.
Boe naid bain gwannathar,
Boe cuil ban firitha.
Boe naer gwannathach…

You are not bound to loss and silence.
For you are not bound to the circles of this world.
All things must pass away,
All life is doomed to fade.
Sorrowing you must go…

Do you know this beautiful song? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJH7l5WjJKE i saw the Elvish sentences in the last part of the clip (love Tolkiens wisdom, especially The Silmarillion) and that’s how i found your site. Good luck in all your endeavours! Annemarie, the Netherlands, Europe
