674Re: [elfscript] Re: How to write these words in Tengwar cursive fonts?
- Mar 3, 2002Ok, I've been doing research into writing, a very
involved process. I have one question about the three
words wolfiina's been working on.
Most sites that I have found have the vowels as
symbols above or below the tengwar. Wolkiina is using
a different symbol for "e" than I found. Is there two
ways of thinking on this one?

"I will leave, I will leave the woods that bore me;
For our days are ending and our years failing.
I will pass the wide waters lonely sailing.
Long are the waves on the Last Shore falling,
Sweet are the voices in the Lost Isle calling,
In Eress�a, In Elvenhome that no man can discover,
Where the leaves fall not: land of my people for ever!"
