J.R.R. Tolkien Reads (A Poem In Elvish)



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!

    Ai! Laurië lantar lassi surinen, yeni únotimë ve rámar aldaron!
    Yéni ve lintë yuldar avánier mi oromardi lissë miruvóreva.
    Andúnë pella, Vardo tellumar nu luini yassen tintilar I eleni ómaryo airetàri-lirinen
    So man I yulma enquantuva?

    An si Tintallë Varda Oiolossëo ve fanyar máryat Elentari ortanë. At ilyë tier undulavë lumbulë. Sr sindanóriello caita mornië i falmalinnar imbë met, ar hisië untúpa Calaciryo míri oialë. Si vanwa ná, Romello vanwa, Valimar!

    Namarië! Nai hiru valyë Valimar!
    Nai elyë firuva! Namarië!

    I know this whole poem by heart!

    Is this Sindarin or Quenya? I'm hearing a lot of comparisons to Finnish, so that would point toward Quenya, but does anyone know for sure?

    That was beautiful. I was only able to catch a few words, but it was still wonderful. Tolkien is a genius. Does anybody know the name of the poem and/or know where I can find the English translation? (Sorry for asking, but I'm not fluent in Quenya and Sindarin yet.)

    why the flying fuck, there is not a official Elvish language… why they don't try to finish it completely with it's own grammar and stuff.. for the sake of the fans ://…

    It's very cool to hear Mr. Tolkien himself speak the Elvish language. He was such a genius writer. 😀

    I'm studying this language. This was great to hear. To learn the correct way to pronounce the words

    This is Namárië, the Quenya song/poem that Galadriel sings in farewell as the Fellowship leaves Lothlorien (the "Farewell to Lorien" chapter in Fellowship of the Ring).

    Both the Quenya text and English translation are available there if you have access to the books. There are sites out there that have them too, though (should be easily found now that you have the name of the thing).

    We need a sarcasm font.
    Because I think this was sarcasm. I HOPE this was sarcasm…
