Quanta Eruanno

J. R. R. Tolkien was born on this day in 1892. One of his translations of the Ave Maria into Quenya:

Aia María quanta Eruanno
i Héru as elye·
aistana elye imíca nísi:
ar aistana i yáve mónalyo Yésus:
Aire María Eruo ontaril
á hyame rámen úcarindor
sí ar lúmesse ya firuvamme:

Quanta Eruanno literally means, 'full of God's gift'.
