Contains Tolkien’s poem Light as Leaf on Lindentree.

See page 217.

Reprinted in The Lays of Beleriand (1985) within The Lay of the Children of Húrin together with details of variant typescript versions and later revisions.

The poem is a precursor of Aragorn’s song of Beren and Lúthien in The Fellowship of the Ring (A Knife in the Dark). An intermediate version can be found in The Return of the Shadow.
