'''Namárië''', also called '''Galadriel's Lament''' and sometimes '''Song of the Elves beyond the Sea''', is the longest [[Quenya]] text in ''[[The Lord of the Rings]]''. The word ''Namárië'' means "farewell" in Quenya.
+
 
+
This poem was set to music by [[Donald Swann]]. The sheet music and an audio recording are part of ''[[The Road Goes Ever On (book)|The Road Goes Ever On, A Song Cycle]]''.

==Song==
+
<poem style="font-style:italic; margin-left:20px;">  
+
Ai! laurië lantar lassi súrinen,
+
yéni únótimë ve rámar aldaron!
+
Yéni ve lintë yuldar avánier
+
mi oromardi lisse-miruvóreva
+
Andúnë pella, Vardo tellumar
+
nu luini yassen tintilar i eleni
+
ómaryo airetári-lírinen.
+
 
+
Sí man i yulma nin enquantuva?
+
 
+
An sí Tintallë Varda Oiolossëo
+
ve fanyar máryat Elentári ortanë,
+
ar ilyë tier undulávë lumbulë;
+
ar sindanóriello caita mornië
+
i falmalinnar imbë met, ar hísië
+
untúpa Calaciryo míri oialë.
+
Sí vanwa ná, Rómello vanwa, Valimar!
+
 
+
Namárië! Nai hiruvalyë Valimar.
+
Nai elyë hiruva. Namárië!</poem>
+
 
+
===Translation===
+
The song translates into English thus:
+
<poem style="font-style:italic; margin-left:20px;">
+
Ah! like gold fall the leaves in the wind,
+
long years numberless as the wings of trees!
+
The years have passed like swift draughts
+
of the sweet mead in lofty halls beyond the West,
+
beneath the blue vaults of [[Varda]]
+
wherein the stars tremble in the song of her voice, holy and queenly.
+
 
+
Who now shall refill the cup for me?
+
 
+
For now the Kindler, Varda, the Queen of the Stars,
+
from Mount Everwhite has uplifted her hands like clouds,
+
and all paths are drowned deep in shadow;
+
and out of a grey country darkness lies on the foaming waves between us,
+
and mist covers the jewels of [[Calacirya]] for ever.
+
Now lost, lost to those from the East is [[Valimar]]!
+
 
+
Farewell! Maybe thou shalt find Valimar.
+
Maybe even thou shalt find it. Farewell!</poem>
