The Days of the King

I know this is late, and that we’re in Barcelona, but I had to post this. 

“The the guards stepped forward, and Faramir opened the casket, and he held up an ancient crown.  It was shaped like the helms of the Guards of the Citadel, save that it was loftiere, and it was all white, and the wings at either side were wrought of pearl and silver in the likeness of the wings of a sea bird, for it was the emblem of kings who came over the Sea, and seven gems of adamant were set in teh circlet, and upon its summit was set a single jewel the light of which went up like a flame. 

Then Aragorn took the crown and held it up and said:

Et Earello Endorenna utulien.  Sinome maruvan ar Hildinyar tenn’ Ambar-metta! 

And those were the words that Elendil spoke when he came up out of the Sea on the wings of the wind: “Out of the Great Sea to Middle-earth I am come.  In this place will I abide, and my heirs, unto the ending of the world.”
