Amarië,
beloved of Finrod Felagund

forgotten harper, singer doomed,
who young when Laurelin yet bloomed
to endless lamentation passed
and in the tombless sea was cast.

gleaming in the light beyond the hill.

The Silmarillion modern aesthetic | Nerdanel the Wise


In her youth she loved to wander far from the dwellings of the Noldor,
either beside the long shores of the Sea or in the hills; and thus she
and Fëanor had met and were companions in many journeys.
