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.
