I have made a translation of Arkihuolesi kaikki heitä. It is an old Finnish Christmas song written by Alpo Noponen, with a melody by Leevi Madetoja. Click here to see a performance of the song by the vocal group Rajaton. Translating metrically into Quenya is a time consuming job, so I hope you will enjoy this.

Some of you out there still may remember this, although this whole issue seems to be covered under a thick layer of dust... I am talking about ARCA 2006, those three riddles that have not been solved so far.

I am sure most of you have been following the discussion on elfling ongoing mostly between Jason and Travis (for those who have not the thread - although there had been other threads leading to it - starts with Helge's exposé at elfling message 34513). It is, I must say, a very civilised debate and I am certain it provokes thoughts in a lot of us trying to study Tolkien's languages.

This a translation of a poem by William Blake. I strove to recreate the air of the original which sounds like a storm when read aloud - I hope I have achieved a similar effect.

A short poem - I hope you'll enjoy it. All comments welcome.

isn't it time for a little game again? Let's put our skills to a try and see if we can make and guess *pent-thennath, i.e. famous stories, novels, tales, movies, plays summarized in a single Dodonaic Quenya/Sindarin/Telerin/whatever sentence!
Are you game?

Some indulge in luxury
I never longed for such wealth.
