Yes, the world felt all clean and fresh today - we had a bit of a storm last night but not as dramatic as I was hoping!

We had two storms, late evening and about 1.15, really energetic, incredible lightning! It’s nice this morning though!

- The Lament Of Glorfindel -

I can hear them dying still

Hear their cries against my will

Smoke and fire

Dark desire

Sold out Gondolin
.

Wind is howling in my ears

Dries away my salty tears

Tall I stand

Sword in my hand

Above Gondolin
.

Demon breath has scorched my skin

Wiped out all my friends and kin

Last ones dying

Crawling, trying

Fleeing Gondolin
.

Handle slippery with blood

From whose wound this crimson flood

Steals the life

In pain and strife

Of ruined Gondolin
.

There's no need for my defence

My resistance makes no sense

I will fall

Before the walls

Of fair Gondolin
.

Maeglin, I curse your name

And this beast of shade and flame

Final blow

My blood will flow

Farewell, Gondolin
.

Born again in Arda changed

To these times I feel estranged

Silent trees

No hope to seize

After Gondolin
.

You, my friend, are brave and wise

Naked truth before your eyes

Every breath

Is Elven death

I leave for Gondolin.
