Meril - Rose

Illustration of the Sindarin tanka 'Rose' by JunoMagic

Rovail en·ithil
Tūgat in ūl e·meril.
Flād gīn morn flād nīn.
Na·vathad nīn echadas
Elodhio meril gīn.
Wings of moonlight
Carry the scent of roses.
Your skin hot against my skin.
My touch makes
Your rose bloom.



Tanka - I imagine that Elvish love poetry will emphasize nature and be suggestive rather than explicit.

Illustration - The roses in this collage are from a picture I took myself. The other images used are pictures posted under a "Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike" licence at Flickr. The background with grass and moon is a picture by Hobo pd. The landscape with trees and moon is by "Steve took it" and the girl with her arms stretched out to the back is by sam_samantha.

Anything at all: if you noticed a typo, if you don't like a characterization or description or if there was anything you particularly enjoyed ...

I am really interested in knowing what my readers think about what I write.
