Grace of Undomiel by balaa Grace of Undomiel by balaa
The Grace of Undómiel
Howard Shore
* ~~~ *
Ngîl cennin eriel vi
Menel aduial,
Glingant sui mîr
Síliel mae.

Ngîl cennin firiel vi
Menel aduial,
Dúr, dúr i fuin
Naenol mae.

An i ú nathant
An i naun ului
A chuil, anann cuiannen
A meleth, perónen


I saw a star rise high in the
Evening sky,
It hung like a jewel,
Softly shining.

I saw a star fade in the
Evening sky,
The dark was too deep and so light died,
Softly pining.

For what might have been,
For what never was.
For a life, long lived
For a love half given

* ~~~ *



In actuality this is an older piece that of late caught up with me and the urge to finish it could not be quelled. There was always a persistence of melancholy about this image, but it never felt guided or 'right' until now. I had a daydream and saw his eyes and knew I had to revisit him and let him know life, if even in the single moment captured in this image...though pale, hope yet lingers.

Absolutely wonderful. Many thoughts came in my mind when I looked at this piece of art and listened to the music mentioned in the description. Got some kind of magical feelings. Just thank you really much! I love it! :tighthug: :heart: Also the origianl is awesome, but I think the background made it better.
