Galadriel's messages were messages given by Galadriel to Gandalf the White, during his stay in Lothlórien after his battle with the Balrog. She bade him deliver them to Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli, a task Gandalf accomplished when he met them at last in Fangorn Forest.[1]


Aragorn

Where now are the Dúnedain, Elessar, Elessar?
Why do thy kinsfolk wander afar?
Near is the hour when the Lost should come forth,
And the Grey Company ride from the North.
But dark is the path appointed for thee:
The Dead watch the road that leads to the Sea.

Legolas

Legolas Greenleaf long under tree
In joy thou hast lived. Beware of the Sea!
If thou hearest the cry of the gull on the shore,
Thy heart shall then rest in the forest no more.'

Gimli

Lock-bearer, wherever thou goest my thought goes with thee.
But have a care to lay thine axe to the right tree!"
