Golden Gull

From the mouth of the sea the South Wind flies,

From the sand hills and the stones;

The wailing of the gulls it bears, and at the gate it moans

What news from the South, oh sighing wind, do you bring to me at eve?

Where now is Boromir the Fair? He tarries and I grieve.

‘Ask me not where he doth dwell--so many bones there lie

On the white shores and on the black shores under the stormy sky;

So many have passed down Anduin to find the flowing sea.

Ask of the North Wind news of them the North Wind sends to me!’

Oh Boromir! Beyond the gate the Seaward road runs South,

But you came not with the wailing gulls from the grey seas mouth.

J.R.R. Tolkien
