      _sílala_'shining' MC:214)? The Westron version would be a poetic
      paraphrase."

      _Olosse íre losse ve_

      metre: sSsSsSss (s==unaccented syllable, S=¬cented syllable)

      _Olosse íre sílala_

      metre: sSsSsSss

      This presupposes that there are no elisions in Quenya poems, doesn't
      it? Perhaps there aren't. Just checking and asking.
