Tolkien Fan Fiction Home Tolkien Fan FictionAll the tales of the Valar and the Elves are so knit together that one may scarce expound any one without needing to set forth the whole of their great history.

Nai A-lehanoi Ta'alsheenoi, "Briary Verses": Coil

Tell of Nuvimeb!
Servant most blessed
Most high, most beloved.

Who was Nuvimeb?
What tribe, what khanate
Could claim: “She was ours”?

Who was Nuvimeb?
The guest most at home
The lowly most high
The crosser of mountains
The walker of deserts
Bearer of news
Who always returned
To her chosen lord

And that day she made him
To his own wife a stranger:
To his enemies,
She yielded naught.
Twenty times twenty
The wounds she bore,
As a man, as a warrior.

Who was Nuvimeb?
The Rose-maid of Harad,
For love of a people
Not her own kind.
