> *vI'laS HuDmey bIr Hay HopDaq*

"At the far beyond of the cold mountains of mist"

Is it possible for {Hay} and the similar nouns (Dung, bIngDaq, retlh, etc),
to have be-verbs used as adjectives ?

{vI'laS} means "fog, mist". {HuDmey'e' velbogh vI'laS}, perhaps?

Tolkien also called them the Mountains of Mist. Just say *vI'laS HuD.*

Where Tolkien uses the word *dungeons* in the poem, he doesn't mean the
prison kind; he's referring to underground chambers.

A literal translation (without attempting to reproduce the poetry):

*vI'laS HuDmey bIr Hay HopDaq wutlh pa'mey jaQDaq DIS qanDaq 'IDnar qol'om
wov wInejmeH malengnISchoH qaSpa' jajlo'.*

Best I could do for *enchanted gold* without getting unwieldy.
