The Poem that Inspired Theoden's,"They have passed like rain on the mountains" Speech

Submitted by SoloSeal in Tolkien

The Wanderer

Hwaer cwom mearg, hwaer cwom mago? Hwaer cwom maþþumgyfa?

Hwaer cwom symbla gesetu?Hwaer sindon seledreamas?

Eala beorht bune, eala byrnwiga, eala theodnes þrym!

Hu seo þrag gewat, Genap under nihthelm, swa heo no waere!

...................................................................................................................

Where is that horse now? Where are those men? Where is the hoard-sharer?

Where is the house of the feast? Where is the hall's uproar?

Alas, bright cup! Alas, burnished fighter!

Alas, proud prince! How that time has passed,

Dark under night’s helm, as though it never had been!
