This is a poem by Galadriel informing Frodo and Bilbo of the Valar before they dock in Valinor

The Valar in Short

By Galadriel

Sulimo the greatest, he is surnamed

He lives high on a mountain above all he claims

But where are we going, dear lady the white?

My eyes are now darkened, I can't see the light

We go to the blessed realm, the shores are in sight

To Valinor where great Manwë reigns

Old Ulmo is king of the lords of the sea

With Uinen and Ossë, the ocean gods, three

But where are we going, dear lady the white?

My eyes are now darkened, I can't see the light

We go to the blessed realm, the shores are in sight

To Valinor, but old Ulmo roams free

Aulë is the smith, who builds mighty towns

He fashioned the dwarves, at which Eru frowned

But where are we going, dear lady the white?

My eyes are now darkened, I can't see the light

We go to the blessed realm, the shores are in sight

To Valinor, where his mansions are found

Oromë is the hunter who rides his white horses

His horn (Valaróma) sounds through the world's courses

But where are we going, dear lady the white?

My eyes are now darkened, I can't see the light

We go to the blessed realm, the shores are in sight

To Valinor, where Oromë stays his forces

Mandos is the king of the spirits retired

After their life, when the soul has expired

But where are we going, dear lady the white?

My eyes are now darkened, I can't see the light

We go to the blessed realm, the shores are in sight

To Valinor, where Mandos was sired

Brethren to Mandos is Lorien of dreams

He gives many visions, things aren't what they seem

But where are we going, dear Lady the white?

My eyes are now darkened, I can't see the light

We go to the blessed realm, the shores are in sight

To Valinor, where Lorien can be seen

Tulkas the strong blooms in physical powers

He humbles the mighty, by him Morgoth cowers

But where are we going, dear lady the white?

My eyes are now darkened, I can't see the light

We go to the blessed realm, the shores are in sight

To Valinor, to Tulkas' towers.

You may have realised by now that there are seven male 'great gods' or Valar. I have tried to illustrate the main idea of each one in each verse. I will put up a second chapter with poems about the Valier, the female great gods.

I have another poem also about the journey to Valinor, but in Bilbo's point of view. Have a look!
