A Sindarin love poem, The Crescent Moon

I Gúron.

I gúron cên velethronen
Ias palan-revia pen râd
Ai, ithil veren cenithach
Estel 'uren vi estolad.

Thîr dín cenithach, thîr dín vell
I aníron cened trî chin
Limp a níniel ah ríw garan,
Dân bannen ah calad sui lín.

Ten anno hiniath o nin.
Pedo gûr hen dartha thenin
A mibo thîr dín ah mipheleg
A tiro din, seron vell nín.

The Crescent Moon

The crescent moon sees my lover
Where he wanders far, pathless.
Ah, joyous moon, you will see
My heart's hope in an encampment.

His face you shall see, his dear face
That I desire to see through eyes
Wet and tearful with red borders,
But filled with a light like yours.

Give him news of me.
Say this heart stays true
And kiss his face with a little kiss
And watch over him, my dear lover.
