She sang a song of life and light,

Of stars of evening shimm'ring bright,

and glory flowering in the night.

In the deep dark a gleam of white

shone from the earth; and slowly grew

fresh and bright, a radiance new

Fell fair from it as silver rain;

White flowers blossomed in the train

of dark green leaves with silver edged

And yielded forth the light ungrudged

Of a pale white-glimmering dawn

and silver light shone on the lawn.

Then slowly with a growth of gold

Laurelin shining leaves unfold

Of bright fresh green as spring's new shoots

And sunlight dancing on the roots

Of ancient trees through em'rald leaves.

Flowers radiant through the sheaves

Of the gold growth of Laurelin

in clusters spill the light within

every fair leaf and branch and bloom;

Radiant gold drove back the gloom.

They were the trees of Valinor,

White and gold, the glory of yore

Shone in them; the dawn of white

was brightened with the golden light

Of Laurelin, like rising sun.

In glory and in light upon

The mound of green Ezellohar

Their radiance bright was seen afar.

Yavanna rested from her song

Silence fell, as ever more strong

The glory of the Two trees shone,

the glimmer of a blissful dawn.
