Lá Húru

Lá Húru is a poem by J.R.R. Tolkien, sung to the tune of "Are You the O'Reilly Who Keeps This Hotel?" The poem was composed by Tolkien ca. 1924. It was published in Songs for the Philologists in 1936.[1]

The poem was rendered in pen and ink, together with Tolkien's translation Syx Mynet, on one leaf. The manuscript is kept in the Tolkien-Gordon Collection at the Library of the University of Leeds.[1]
