Tiriel2.6;   E277|        Mnetha now aged waited on them. & brought them food & clothing
Tiriel2.7;   E277|        But they were as the shadow of Har. & as the years forgotten
Tiriel2.8;   E277|        Playing with flowers. & running after birds they spent the day
Tiriel2.9;   E277|        And in the night like infants slept delighted with infant dreams

Tiriel2.10; E277|        Soon as the blind wanderer enterd the pleasant gardens of Har   t361

Tiriel2.20; E278|        No matter who I am O Mnetha. if thou hast any food
Tiriel2.21; E278|        Give it me. for I cannot stay my journey is far from hence

Tiriel2.22; E278|        Then Har said O my mother Mnetha venture not so near him

Tiriel2.30; E278|        He is an innocent old man & hungry with his travel

Tiriel2.38; E278|        Thou art my Tiriels old father. I know thee thro thy wrinkles

Tiriel2.43; E278|        I am not of this region. said Tiriel dissemblingly   t365
Tiriel2.44; E278|        I am an aged wanderer once father of a race
Tiriel2.45; E278|        Far in the north. but they were wicked & were all destroyd
Tiriel2.46; E278|        And I their father sent an outcast. I have told you all
Tiriel2.47; E278|        Ask me no more I pray for grief hath seald my precious sight

Tiriel2.48; E278|        O Lord said Mnetha how I tremble are there then more people
Tiriel2.49; E278|        More human creatures on this earth beside the sons of Har

Tiriel2.50; E278|        No more said Tiriel but I remain on all this globe
Tiriel2.51; E278|        And I remain an outcast. hast thou any thing to drink

Tiriel2.52; E278|        Then Mnetha gave him milk & fruits. & they sat down together

Tirielch; E278|        3

Tiriel3.1;   E279|        They sat & eat & Har & Heva smild on Tiriel

Tiriel3.2;   E279|        Thou art a very old old man but I am older than thou
Tiriel3.3;   E279|        How came thine hair to leave thy forehead how came thy face so brown
Tiriel3.4;   E279|        My hair is very long my beard. doth cover all my breast
Tiriel3.5;   E279|        God bless thy piteous face. to count the wrinkles in thy face
Tiriel3.6;   E279|        Would puzzle Mnetha. bless thy face for thou art Tiriel   t366

Tiriel3.7;   E279|        Tiriel I never saw but once I sat with him & eat
Tiriel3.8;   E279|        He was as chearful as a prince & gave me entertainment
Tiriel3.9;   E279|        But long I staid not at his palace for I am forcd to wander

Tiriel3.10; E279|        What wilt thou leave us too said Heva thou shalt not leave us too
Tiriel3.11; E279|        For we have many sports to shew thee & many songs to sing
Tiriel3.12; E279|        And after dinner we will walk into the cage of Har
Tiriel3.13; E279|        And thou shalt help us to catch birds. & gather them ripe cherries
Tiriel3.14; E279|        Then let thy name be Tiriel & never leave us more
Tiriel3.15; E279|        If thou dost go said Har I wish thine eyes may see thy folly
Tiriel3.16; E279|        My sons have left me did thine leave thee O twas very cruel

Tiriel.17; E279|        No venerable man said Tiriel ask me not such things
Tiriel3.18; E279|        For thou dost make my heart to bleed my sons were not like thine
Tiriel3.19; E279|        But worse O never ask me more or I must flee away

Tiriel3.20; E279|        Thou shalt not go said Heva till thou hast seen our singing birds
Tiriel3.21; E279|        And heard Har sing in the great cage & slept upon our fleeces
Tiriel3.22; E279|        Go not for thou art so like Tiriel. that I love thine head
Tiriel3.23; E279|        Tho it is wrinkled like the earth parchd with the summer heat

Tiriel3.24; E279|        Then Tiriel rose up from the seat & said god bless these tents   t367
Tiriel3.25; E279|        My Journey is oer rocks & mountains. not in pleasant vales
Tiriel3.26; E279|        I must not sleep nor rest because of madness & dismay   t368

Tiriel3.27; E279|        And Mnetha said Thou must not go to wander dark. alone
Tiriel3.28; E279|        But dwell with us & let us be to thee instead of eyes
Tiriel3.29; E279|        And I will bring thee food old man. till death shall call thee hence

Tiriel3.30; E279|        Then Tiriel frownd & answerd. Did I not command you saying
Tiriel3.31; E279|        Madness & deep dismay posses[s] the heart of the blind man
Tiriel3.32; E279|        The wanderer who seeks the woods leaning upon his staff   t369

Tiriel3.33; E279|        Then Mnetha trembling at his frowns led him to the tent door
Tiriel3.34; E279|        And gave to him his staff & blest him. he went on his way

Tiriel3.35; E279|        But Har & Heva stood & watchd him till he enterd the wood
Tiriel3.36; E279|        And then they went & wept to Mnetha. but they soon forgot their tears

Tirielch; E279|        4

Tiriel4.1;   E280|        Over the weary hills the blind man took his lonely way
Tiriel4.2;   E280|        To him the day & night alike was dark & desolate
Tiriel4.3;   E280|        But far he had not gone when Ijim from his woods come down
Tiriel4.4;   E280|        Met him at entrance of the forest in a dark & lonely way

Tiriel4.5;   E280|        Who art thou Eyeless wretch that thus obstructst the lions path
Tiriel4.6;   E280|        Ijim shall rend thy feeble joints thou tempter of dark Ijim
Tiriel4.7;   E280|        Thous hast the form of Tiriel but I know thee well enough
Tiriel4.8;   E280|        Stand from my path foul fiend is this the las of thy deceits
Tiriel4.9;   E280|        To be a hypocrite & stand in shape of a blind beggar

Tiriel4.10; E280|        The blind man heard his brothers voice & kneeld down on his knee

Tiriel4.11; E280|        O brother Ijim if it is thy voice that speaks to me
Tiriel4.12; E280|        Smite not thy brother Tiriel tho weary of his life
Tiriel4.13; E280|        My sons have smitten me already. and if thou smitest me
Tiriel4.14; E280|        The curse that rolls over their heads will rest itself on thine
Tiriel4.15; E280|        Tis now seven years since in my palace I beheld thy face   t370
Tiriel4.16; E280|        Come thou dark fiend I dare thy cunning know that Ijim scorns
Tiriel4.17; E280|        To smite the[e] in the form of helpless age & eyeless policy
Tiriel4.18; E280|        Rise up for I discern thee & I dare thy eloquent tongue
Tiriel4.19; E280|        Come I will lead thee on thy way & use thee as a scoff

Tiriel4.20; E280|        O Brother Ijim thou beholdest wretched Tiriel
Tiriel4.21; E280|        Kiss me my brother & then leave me to wander desolate

Tiriel4.22; E280|        No artful fiend. but I will lead thee dost thou want to go
Tiriel4.23; E280|        Reply not lest I bind thee with the green flags of the brook
Tiriel4.24; E280|        Ay now thou art discoverd I will use thee like a slave

Tiriel4.25; E280|        When Tiriel heard the words of Ijim he sought not to reply
Tiriel4.26; E280|        He knew twas vain for Ijims words were as the voice of Fate

Tiriel4.27; E280|        And they went on together over hills thro woody dales
Tiriel4.28; E280|        Blind to the pleasures of the sight & deaf to warbling birds
Tiriel4.29; E280|        All day they walkd & all the night beneath the pleasant Moon
Tiriel4.30; E280|        Westwardly journeying till Tiriel grew weary with his travel

Tiriel4.31; E280|        O Ijim I am faint & weary for my knees forbid
Tiriel4.32; E280|        To bear me further. urge me not lest I should die with travel
Tiriel4.33; E280|        A little rest I crave a little water from a brook
Tiriel4.34; E280|        Or I shall soon discover that I am a mortal man
Tiriel4.35; E280|        And you will lose your once lovd Tiriel alas how fain I am

Tiriel4.36; E280|        Impudent fiend said Ijim hold thy glib & eloquent tongue
Tiriel4.37; E280|        Tiriel is a king. & thou the tempter of dark Ijim
Tiriel4.38; E280|        Drink of this runing brook. & I will bear thee on my shoulders  t371
Tiriel4.39; E280|        He drank & Ijim raisd him up & bore him on his shoulders

Tiriel4.40; E281|        All day he bore him & when evening drew her solemn curtain
Tiriel4.41; E281|        Enterd the gates of Tiriels palace. & stood & calld aloud

Tiriel4.42; E281|        Heuxos come forth I here have brought the fiend that troubles Ijim
Tiriel4.43; E281|        Look knowst thou aught of this grey beard. or of these blinded eyes

Tiriel4.44; E281|        Heuxos & Lotho ran forth at the sound of Ijims voice
Tiriel4.45; E281|        And saw their aged father borne upon his mighty shoulders
Tiriel4.46; E281|        Their eloquent tongues were dumb & sweat stood on. their trembling limbs
Tiriel4.47; E281|        They knew twas vain to strive with Ijim they bowd & silent stood

Tiriel4.48; E281|        What Heuxos call thy father for I mean to sport to night   t372
Tiriel4.49; E281|        This is the Hypocritc that sometimes roars a dreadful lion
Tiriel4.50; E281|        Then I have rent his limbs & left him rotting in the forest   t373
Tiriel4.51; E281|        For birds to eat but I have scarce departed from the place
Tiriel4.52; E281|        But like a tyger he would come & so I rent him too
Tiriel4.53; E281|        Then like a river be would seek to drown me in his waves
Tiriel4.54; E281|        But soon I buffetted the torrent anon like to a cloud
Tiriel4.55; E281|        Fraught with the swords of lightning. but I bravd the vengeance too
Tiriel4.56; E281|        Then he would creep like a bright serpent till around my neck
Tiriel4.57; E281|        While I was Sleeping he would twine I squeezd his poisnous soul
Tiriel4.58; E281|        Then like a toad or like a newt. would whisper in my ears
Tiriel4.59; E281|        Or like a rock stood in my way. or like a poisnous shrub
Tiriel4.60; E281|        At last I caught him in the form of Tiriel blind & old
Tiriel4.61; E281|        And so Ill keep him fetch your father fetch forth Myratana

Tiriel4.62; E281|        They stood confounded. and Thus Tiriel raisd his silver voice

Tiriel4.63; E281|        Serpents not sons why do you stand fetch hither Tiriel   t374
Tiriel4.64; E281|        Fetch hither Myratana & delight yourselves with scoffs
Tiriel4.65; E281|        For poor blind Tiriel is returnd & this much injurd head
Tiriel4.65; E281|        Is ready for your bitter taunts. come forth sons of the curse

Tiriel4.67; E281|        Mean time the other sons of Tiriel ran around their father
Tiriel4.68; E281|        Confounded at the terrible strength of Ijim they knew twas vain
Tiriel4.69; E281|        Both spear & shield were useless & the coat of iron mail
Tiriel4.70; E281|        When Ijim stretchd his mighty arm. the arrow from his limbs
Tiriel4.71; E281|        Rebounded & the piercing sword broke on his naked flesh   t375

Tiriel4.72; E281|        Then is it true Heuxos that thou hast turnd thy aged parent
Tiriel4.73; E281|        To be the sport of wintry winds. (said Ijim) is this true
Tiriel4.74; E281|        It is a lie & I am like the tree torn by the wind   t376
Tiriel4.75; E281|        Thou eyeless fiend. & you dissemblers. Is this Tiriels house
Tiriel4.76; E281|        It is as false [as] Matha. & as dark as vacant Orcus   t377
Tiriel4.77; E281|        Escape ye fiends for Ijim will not lift his hand against ye

Tiriel4.78; E281|        So saying. Ijim gloomy turnd his back & silent sought
Tiriel4.79; E281|        The secret forests & all night wanderd in desolate ways   t378

Tirielch; E281|        5

Tiriel5.1;   E282|        And aged Tiriel stood & said where does the thunder sleep

Tiriel5.18; E282|        The cry was great in Tiriels palace his five daughters ran

Tirielch; E284|        7

Tiriel7.1;   E284|        She howling led him over mountains & thro frighted vales
Tiriel7.2;   E284|        Till to the caves of Zazel they approachd at even tide

Tiriel7.3;   E284|        Forth from their caves old Zazel & his sons ran. when they saw
Tiriel7.4;   E284|        Their tyrant prince blind & his daughter howling & leading him

Tiriel7.5;   E284|        They laughd & mocked some threw dirt & stones as they passd by
Tiriel7.6;   E284|        But when Tiriel turnd around & raisd his awful voice
Tiriel7.7;   E284|        Some fled away but Zazel stood still & thus began   t387

Tiriel7.8;   E284|        Bald tyrant. wrinkled cunning listen to Zazels chains   t388

Tiriel7.12; E284|        Thy crown is bald old man. the sun will dry thy brains away
Tiriel7.13; E284|        And thou wilt be as foolish as thy foolish brother Zazel

Tiriel7.14; E284|        The blind man heard. & smote his breast & trembling passed on
Tiriel7.15; E284|        They threw dirt after them. till to the covert of a wood
Tiriel7.16; E284|        The howling maiden led her father where wild beasts resort
Tiriel7.17; E284|        Hoping to end her woes. but from her cries the tygers fled   t389
Tiriel7.18; E284|        All night they wanderd thro the wood & when the sun arose
Tiriel7.19; E284|        They enterd on the mountains of Har at Noon the happy tents
Tiriel7.20; E284|        Were frighted by the dismal cries of Hela on the mountains

Tiriel7.21; E284|        But Har & Heva slept fearless as babes. on loving breasts
Tiriel7.22; E284|        Mnetha awoke she ran & stood at the tent door & saw
Tiriel7.23; E284|        The aged wanderer led towards the tents she took her bow
Tiriel7.24; E284|        And chose her arrows then advancd to meet the terrible pair

Tirielch; E284|        8

Tiriel8.1;   E284|        And Mnetha hasted & met them at the gate of the lower garden

Tiriel8.2;   E284|        Stand still or from my bow recieve a sharp & winged death

Tiriel8.3;   E284|        Then Tiriel stood. saying what soft voice threatens such bitter things

Tiriel8.5;   E284|        And Mnetha led them to the tent of Har. and Har & Heva
Tiriel8.6;   E284|        Ran to the door. when Tiriel felt the ankles of aged Har
Tiriel8.7;   E284|        He said. O weak mistaken father of a lawless race

Tiriel8.8;   E285|        Thy laws O Har & Tiriels wisdom end together in a curse   t391
Tiriel8.9;   E285|        Why is one law given to the lion & th patient Ox   t392
Tiriel8.10; E285|        And why men bound beneath the heavens in a reptile form   t393
Tiriel8.11; E285|        A worm of sixty winters creeping on the dusky ground
Tiriel8.12; E285|        The child springs from the womb. the father ready stands to form
Tiriel8.13; E285|        The infant head while the mother idle plays with her dog on her couch
Tiriel8.14; E285|        The young bosom is cold for lack of mothers nourishment & milk
Tiriel8.15; E285|        Is cut off from the weeping mouth with difficulty & pain
Tiriel8.16; E285|        The little lids are lifted & the little nostrils opend
Tiriel8.17; E285|        The father forms a whip to rouze the sluggish senses to act
Tiriel8.18; E285|        And scourges off all youthful fancies from the newborn man
Tiriel8.19; E285|        Then walks the weak infant in sorrow compelld to number footsteps   t394
Tiriel8.20; E285|        Upon the sand. &c
Tiriel8.21; E285|        And when the drone has reachd his crawling length   t395
Tiriel8.22; E285|        Black berries appear that poison all around him. Such was Tiriel   t396
Tiriel8.23; E285|        Compelld to pray repugnant & to humble the immortal spirit
Tiriel8.24; E285|        Till I am subtil as a serpent in a paradise
Tiriel8.25; E285|        Consuming all both flowers & fruits insects & warbling birds
Tiriel8.26; E285|        And now my paradise is falln & a drear sandy plain
Tiriel8.27; E285|        Returns my thirsty hissings in a curse on thee O Har
Tiriel8.28; E285|        Mistaken father of a lawless race my voice is past

Tiriel8.29; E285|        He ceast outstretchd at Har & Hevas feet in awful death
