    Diagramming Tolkien CAT 3

    The streams shall run in gladness, The lakes shall shine and burn, And sorrow fail and sadness, At the Mountain-king's return!

    You left two lines and two "shelves" out, but I think of it slightly differently. I think the prepositional phrase at the end modifies all three clauses. Let me have a go at it.

    I agree. The adverbial phrase belongs to all three clauses.
