Disclaimer: Not my elf, JRRT's elf
Note: another for the cutty things challenge - I'm not very happy with this but it's hard getting an incantation down to 100 words!


What shall I weave? What shall I spin?
What shall I lose? What shall I win?
Song of daytime, song of light
Song of darkness, song of night.
Wine with water mingled be
Wine with water nine times three
Mix werewolf’s tail with Longbeards’ locks
And gloomy Angband’s soaring rocks
‘Til endless as the sea’s domain
And black as shadow’s deepest stain.
Let starshine coax and moonlight call
Make dread night grow as living pall
Then gentle sleep bring dreamless peace
And all my occult labours cease.
So knife shall cut and loom shall weave -
Invisible, I’ll take my leave!
