I have begun writing a song/poem describing the creation of dwarves, told from their perspective. As of now, I have written the first through third stanza. When it is complete, I shall post a recording of me singing it. What do you think so far? Any ideas?
#author: Unknown #title:Of Mahal and the Creation of the Dwarves #types:blue_mountains,durins_folk Long long ago, in days of yore There lived Mahal, master of ore A mighty smith, great things he wrought Of works of skill and art he thought But of his crafts, Mahal grew tired Learners to instruct he desired And so the dwarves he fashioned from stone Hardy and stout, they were his own In secret Mahal laboured long To make them unyielding and strong But the dwarves were still dumb and dull For they had not the Flame Eternal Now Illúvatar knew what was done and Mahal heard the voice of the One
(For those who don't know, Mahal is the dwarves' name for Aulë. If you don't know who Aulë is, Google it.)
