Gil-galad was an Elven-king Of him the harpers sadly sing: the las whose realm was fair and free between the Mountains and the Sea.

His sword was long, his lance was keen, his shining helm afar was seen; the countless stars of heaven's field were mirrored in his silver shield.

But long ago he rode away, and where he dwelleth none can say; for into the darkness fell his star in Mordor where the shadows are.
