In the beginning...


Through the formless Void there came,

Far beyond the grey stars' flight;

His face of flame, His eyes of Light

A ring of embers, burning bright.

-o-

Before our lesser world began

His shining fingers grasped the quill,

And wrote across the empty span

The burning Song of His great will.

-o-

And from His endless mind there came

The Ainur, His great work begun,

In their bright eyes there burned the Flame

That rests within Eru - the One.

-o-

The Song unfurled in harmony

'Til Melkor's theme, in pride conceived,

Fell through shame to sorcery,

An Evil none had as yet dreamed.

-o-

The Song rings still, through countless years,

In hidden chords, the old Refrain;

Eru remembers all the fears

His children feel, and all their pain.


Wow. Please don't ask where this came from, because I'm not exactly sure. I know, I know, it's REALLY weird - but when I was writing this, especially the second and last stanzas, God came to mind. No, I DON'T mean that Eru is somehow God, but it just reminded me of creation, and of how much God cares about us. I am a Christian, id you are wondering. Please excuse my authoress ramblings. :)
