Rondeau: A Change of Mind
- I'd love to live in Rivendell,
as elves are singing, there and then,
songs of the Realm all otherwhen,
and those who in that Realm did dwell.
For music's tongue, for tones that swell,
in Rivendell, my happiest yen,
I'd love to live.
But oh, but oh, beyond my ken,
for mysteries old tongues might tell,
for mallorn blooms sans parallel,
where else but high Lothlori�n
I'd love to live?
