John Ronald Reuel Tolkien “*** The wind was on the withered heat…” / “*** Tuul mööda lagedat nõmme käis…”

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 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.

Tuul mööda lagedat nõmme käis,
kuid laas veel liikumatu näis,
ei lehte puul seal puutund tuul,
kus tummi varje hämarus täis.

Tuul laskus mägedelt, jäine hoog,
ta möirgas justkui tõusuvoog,
ning oigas laas ja lostus maas
puuokstelt rebitud leheloog.

Tuul läänest itta lendas siis,
kõik mühina metsast välja viis
ning hullul hool ta sööstis sool,
kus kostis nüüd ta vilises viis.

Ning paindus alss ja tarn ta hoost,
ta tormas läbi ka pilliroost
ja laukaveel ta mäsles teel
ning taevas pilvi kiskus koost.

Ja Üksildase mäe peal ka
ning lohe urkal tuiskas ta,
kus voogas hall paks suitsuvall
ja süngeist rünkaist koosnes maa.

Ta ruttas, jättes paigad nood,
ees ootasid öö-merede vood.
Ning lainte peal kuu seilas seal
ja tähti puhusid tuulehood.
