Lament for King Theoden

by J. R. R. Tolkien


Original Language English

Out of doubt, out of dark, to the day's rising
he rode singing in the sun, sword usheathing.
Hope he rekindled, and in hope ended;
over death, over dread, over doom lifted
out of loss, out of life, unto long glory.

-- from The Lord of the Rings: One Vol. Edition, by J.R.R. Tolkien
