Earthwizard's Realms of Faërie

	
	
		 Nienna Numenesse: 
	        Western Star of Sorrow and Lamentation
	
	Bright Lady of Sorrow, 
	who under the far western stars, 
	lives beyond the Halls of Mandos
	lamenting the fates of Elvin and Human kin:
	Enchantress of Arda, 
	whose music enfolded
	in sorrow and woe
	weaving light and hope
	before the turning 
	of the world's
	bright wheel of life, 
	still weeps for the earth's dark plight:
	her soft voice dwelling
	with grief and mourning, 
	over the marring of Melkor's 
	dark scarring of the light
	of Valimar's ancient Trees;
	yet, by her might, 
	she brings out of sorrow
	bright hope for the ‘morrow:
	for she is the Valier of Hope;
	so may we all like Olórin
	learn from this bright goddess
	pity and patience, 
	and may the tears of Nienna
	be remembered forevermore:
	from whom Telpirion, 
	one silver leaf did sing
	and from Laurelin, streamed 
	one golden seed, redeemed!
