ᴱQ. fumella n. “(red) poppy, *(lit.) flower of sleep” (Category: Flower (other))

⚠️ᴱQ. fumella, n. “(red) poppy, *(lit.) flower of sleep” (Category: Flower (other))
ᴺQ. !lórelot “poppy, *(lit.) flower of sleep”

A noun appearing as ᴱQ. {fūmella >>} fumella or fūmelot “poppy” in the Qenya Lexicon, with an initial element ᴱQ. fúme “sleep” and a second element of either the suffix -lla or a reduced form of ᴱQ. lóte “flower” (QL/39). In the contemporaneous Poetic and Mythological Words of Eldarissa the variants were fumella and fúmelot valinoriva “poppy” (PME/39). In other early notes Tolkien had “Fumella, the red poppy that grew in hosts in Lorien’s gardens” (PE15/14).

Neo-Quenya: Since Tolkien abandoned ᴱQ. fúme “sleep”, I would update this word to ᴺQ. lórelot “poppy, *(lit.) flower of sleep” using a later form lórë for “sleep”.
