I'm not exactly sure that this goes here, but oh well. This is a poem very different from the other ones I have written. Well, the title explains it all. I was browsing about the Internet and stumbled across a site that had Elvish and their translations on it. After reading through, I wrote a poem with the narrow amounts of words and phrases that I was given.

The English is first followed by the Elvish

And in case you people don't know. The Elvish Language was made up by the Great J.R.R Tolkien, writer of The Hobbit, The Lord of The Rings and a few other things.

Do you have audio to this??? Because it would help me learn it:) it really is amazing!!!
Redd-Duct Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
No, I found some site years and years ago that had Elvish phrases. And I pieced them together. I really can't believe that people are still coming across this! I forget about this thing.

I like it. Despite the fact that it is the Grey Company's "Grelvish," I still like it.

It's loosely based on Sindarin.

And, no offense intended to the author but I'm not sure how much credit you can really be given for this as each line is merely taken directly from the Grey Company's phrasebook. Word for word.
Redd-Duct Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
None taken on the offense line. This was put up in mid-2005 if you look at the date though. and it had been sitting on my old computer for much much longer than that.

how in the heck did you find this thing?
Olandir Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2006
Is this in Sindarin or Quenya?
Redd-Duct Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
Er, I'm not sure. It's been a few years since I've written this, and I don't remember the place where I got it from. The original that was on my computer that had the site was lost when my modem blew up. -_-

One side note :)
What you've used here is not Tolkien's Elvish.
It is called "Tel Mithrim" or "Grey Company's Elvish", an RPG group with a website that decided to make their own version of the elven tongues invented by Tolkien - and, actually, their site declares so, that their elvish language is "loosely based on Tolkien's".
Basically is just a mix of copy & paste words from Tolkien's works and some others words they just made up.
morvaltur Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2007   Digital Artist
Aye, I noticed that too. I like the poem, nonetheless.
Redd-Duct Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
Ah, well thank you for telling me that. This had been years ago that this was written. I'll edit the description with the information you've given me. I still like it though.

Mmm, I's choppy, but the choppiness works wonderfully with the mood =^-^= And the elvishness is great! >.< makes me want my boyfriend, tho......ahhhh!
Redd-Duct Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
Hehe. Gracias. I decided to start replying to all of your little comments cause they all made me happy. You know what this poem was written for? Redd & Toric. When Tor went crazy and killed half the family and then ran off..

Oh, she's on here too. I'll have to sift through to find her name though.
Fontenar Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2006
Yay! I made someone happy! *squees* Ohh, it made me think of them, but....ahh, that's awesome! I remember that.....I don't remember whether Sirius was dead or insane at the time, but I remember Blackwind was reaaaaaaaaaally pissed about the whole situation.

Really? Sweet! I might try to track her down....

A very interesting read, even without being translated into elvish.
Redd-Duct Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2005  Hobbyist General Artist
Well thank you very much. It's one my favorites just because I managed to pull it together with words given to me.
merka2021 Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2005
