Published in “Sauron Defeated”. Translated from Anglo-Saxon.
And Sauron came to the haven. The Lords of
Men fell under the shadow. Tar-Kalion made
war upon the High Powers. Then the Lords of
the West rent the Earth with leave of Ilúvatar.
And the seas flowed into the great chasm and
the Land of Mariners was overwhelmed.
Of old a straight way lay westward, now all
ways are crooked. The Lords of Men are
eastward. The shadow of death lies heavy on
us. Very far away now is the Downfallen.
