Summary: Return beyond hope is a theme



Light of the world, poured into us
   In the world, and of it, until the utter end
No guest, to go beyond this globe
   Howso faint or frayed, red our hands or dark our deeds
We are for the world

Song of the world, yet shaping us
   Beneath the stars, the silver moon and golden sun
No ghost, condemned to linger long
   Distraint and out-of-tune, but still the music hears
We are for the world

Circles of the world, upholding us
   In light and shadow, song and speech and silence sere
No wraith or ruin, fell constraint
   From which cannot be turned again, past hope, to light
We are for the world

Wow, this is beautiful! It really captures the melancholy of Tolkien's elves.
