Thanks for your understanding.

Omentielva Lempea - Quenya / Sindarin Haiku Contest

Though I think everyone has seen the message on Elfling, I repeat it here nevertheless :

Omentielva Lempea organises a Quenya / Sindarin haiku contest. It would be nice to have the participation of some Aglardhers!

Please check the home page of Omentielva for the rules.

Looking forward to receiving your submission.

Olor úfanwa (Glosa)

Appan náti úpaltime;
Auri vanwe calir ninna.

Fernando Pessoa

Appanye náti úpaltime
Yá i meneldie nári hraicénime,
Yá lencave ettule i hiswa lúme
Rénallo lómio ar feanyan latya
I muina ando minna turmen hísea,
Men elmendea cilmion únótime
Yass’ appan náti úpaltime.

Auri vanwe calir ninna
Yá feanya tulta i olor insenna
Yá onortas taura Aiwenáro sina,
Ante ilquo ya cé ua martuva oi ,
Envinyatar mardion et i astollo.
Ar tenna cuivienya, lúmesse senna,
Auri vanwe calir ninna.

I luine lúme (Tritina)

Oron pella oronye i luine lúme.
Morna, orna, tarne i taure nísima.
Rímaryasse ninqui lóteli ilcaner.

Tucina inen elevie ilcaner,
*Arassince ranne ter i senda lúme
Tussanna netya mi calasse nísima.

Tasse tyáves lóte pa lóte nísima
Tenna Lómitáriva míri ilcaner
Ar mornie tompe i lúcea lúme.

Sie vanwe nér
I lúme nísima ar
I lóti i ilcaner.

Beyond the mountain rose the blue hour.
Dark , tall, stood the fragrant wood.
On its edge white flowers gleamed.

Drawn by those (who) starlike gleamed,
A fawn wandered through the peaceful hour

Et lomillo ya túpa ni
Morna ve Latta sis yo tar,
Feanya utúriman
Hantan Valar i valuvar.

Umbarto aika nondasse
únen Þorya, únen naina,
Undu amarto palpie
Karinya yorna, 'nanta orwa.

Han sina rúsea, naika men
Eresse lumbova norto ná.
Ananta loaron sangie
Hire ni uÞorima.

U ape man' náha i ando,
Ké namínen i parma úma,
Nán martanyava káno,
É feanyo hesto vora.

William Ernest Henley
