Hmm, this is interesting, although I have one suggestion: Maybe instead of typing up the books you've read by Tolkien you could do the books you got the song from?
Well the purpose is to create songs related (like they were from) Middle Earth. And I'd really prefer to have people who have read the books enter, I mean people who haven't can too, but its kind an advantage and more understandable to those who have read the books.
I just need to think of a subject... gonk
Yay razz , possible contestant!

Yep, true.
(hopes to be able to write something before the end of the year...)
edit: I think the last poem I wrote was three years ago sweatdrop
Oh yah, everybody feel free to take your time, don't feel like you need to rush. Good songs can take a while to write.
So pretty much, it's just a poem since there can be no melody to be heard?
Yah, pretty much, like in Tolkien's book you couldn't have a melody to hear with it.
I once wrote out lyrics for a song PZ was going to write for her composition class. Since they're in Quenya, I suppose they could count. xd

name: Nimphelos
age: 19
books read by Tolkien: LOTR, Sil, most of UT, roughly half of HoME.
subject of song: passage of time, somewhat Eldarin POV. Possibly Maglor or Daeron.

I aiwi lindaner aldassen,
Hlarnen omantar surinen.
Mal hrŪvŽ utķliŽ,
Ar aiwi avŠnier.

I alca elenion sillŽ,
Ar cennen alcanta Menello,
Er enyaliŽ vanwiello,
An yťni avŠnier.

I lassi caitaner siranna,
Cennen ŪrŽ tulunentŽ,
Mal sirŽ isŪriŽ,
Ar lassi avŠnier.

An sŪ ilqua utķliŽ,
OialŽ ni enyaluva.
InyŽ maruva,
Mal ilqua avŠniŽ.



The birds were singing in the trees,
I heard their voices in the wind,
But winter has come,
And birds have vanished.

The light of the stars shone,
And I saw itís light from the sky,
But a memory from the past,
For years have passed.

The leaves fell upon the river,
I watched when they floated,
But the river has flowed,
And the leaves have vanished.

For now all has come,
Always I will remember.
Always I only will abide,
But all has vanished.
Are we allowed to take a few lines from the books?
Since Gaia isn't working (for me at least) I'll post this again and if my origanel post comes back I'll just have said this twice.
Okay Shadow_Arrow no lines from the books, and Lindelea you are approved and in the contest.
Can you put in modern songs and alter them so that they have LotR goodness in them? Cuz if you can, I'm in, and I found an awesome one: it's not mine. If I'm not allowed to post it here, then I'll post the link to the song. Is that OK?

hmm... how about similar to them?
Okay to both of you but I'm just saying the judges will look higher on a totally origanal one.
