To all the elvish speakers/enthusiasts out there, I was hoping you could do me a great favour and translate the following sentence for me in to Sindarin or Quenya:

"If I were the rain that binds together the heavens and the earth, that in all eternity will never mingle, could I bind together the hearts of two people?"

Many thanks! Unsigned comment by Captainmelani (talk • contribs).

I doubt there's enough of either Quenya or Sindarin available to properly translate it. Besides, Tolkien changed his mind more often than not. Also, the sentence is overly elaborate in English as it is. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 12:42, 1 December 2013 (UTC)
