The Dwarves’ lullaby |The Hobbit|Lyrics

(Apasă aici pentru Română)


English

"The wind was on the withered heath,
but in the forest stirred no leaf:
there shadows lay by night and day,
and dark things silent crept beneath.

The wind came down from mountains cold,
and like a tide it roared and rolled;
the branches groaned, the forest moaned,
and leaves were laid upon the mould.

The wind went on from West to East;
all movement in the forest ceased,
but shrill and harsh across the marsh
its whistling voices were released.

The grasses hissed, their tassels bent,
the reeds were rattling - on it went
o'er shaken pool under the heavens cool
where racing clouds were torn and rent.

It passed the lonely Mountain bare
and swept above the dragon's lair:
there black and dark lay boulders stark
and flying smoke was in the air.

It left the world and took its flight
over the wide seas of the night.
The moon set sail upon the gale,
and stars were fanned to leaping light."

Lyrics: J.R.R. Tolkien

In The Hobbit, the book by J.R.R. Tolkien, there are a lot of lyrics of songs sang by the characters. This is yet another one of them.
The Dwarves sang a sort of lullaby, in Beorn’s house, right before bed, while sitting in front of the fire.
No instruments were mentioned (not like in the previous dwarves’ song: Far over the misty mountains) therefore I sang this song acapella, with multiple recordings.

Above there is an original interpretation of the song.
