Without haste and at peace

they passed into Anórien,

and they came to

the Grey Wood under Amon Dîn;

and there they heard a sound

as of drums beating in the hills,

though no living thing could be seen.

Then Aragorn

let the trumpets be blown;

and heralds cried:

‘Behold, the King Elessar is come!

The Forest of Drúadan he gives

to Ghân-buri-ghân and to his folk,

to be their own for ever;

and hereafter let no man enter it

without their leave!’

Then the drums rolled loudly,

and were silent.
