Printer Friendly: Printer

The Aldudénië was Elemmírë's formal, public lament after the Darkening of Valinor, but she also had private feelings which she put into her poetry. (Three poems by Elemmírë about the Darkening, the First Kinslaying, the Flight of the Noldor, and above all, her love for Lalwen.)


Story Notes:

Written for the Trick or Treat Exchange 2015.

The poems are (I) quatrains in long meter, (II) a sestina, and (III) a sonnet (of variant form). The last poem is set much later than the first two.

Many thanks to Himring for beta-reading.
