Bregalad's Song was sung by the Ent Bregalad, who was also called Quickbeam. The song is a lament for the rowan trees that he loved which were cut down by Orcs. He sang Meriadoc Brandybuck and Peregrin Took to sleep the first night of the Entmoot in TA 3019 with this song.[1]

Lyrics

O Orofarnë, Lassemista, Carnimírië!
O rowan fair, upon your hair how white the blossom lay!
O rowan mine, I saw you shine upon a summer's day,
Your rind so bright, your leaves so light, your voice so cool and soft:
Upon your head how golden-red the crown you bore aloft!
O rowan dead, upon your head your hair is dry and grey;
Your crown is spilled, your voice is stilled for ever and a day.
O Orofarnë, Lassemista, Carnimírië!

Portrayal in adaptations

A few lines of this song are given to Treebeard in Peter Jackson's The Two Towers. He is reciting poetry to Merry and Pippin as he carries them to his home, Wellinghall, and they fall asleep in his arms.
