Unconquered

They thought that they had defeated our noble city, that they had reduced her to ashes when they stole her proud white ships. They thought that we would never recover from such a cruel blow.

I heard one lamenting us, from across the long water. I laughed in response. Fool! Does he believe that he is so mighty that his destruction can last forever?

The Noldor are so foolish! They are wherever they are, wandering beside the pitiless sea or watering the carpet of Mandos with their tears, while in Alqualondë the children swim in the shade of new ships.
