"There were three white towers," Faramir said, sunset gilding his face. "The greatest I knew for Elostirion, though I have seen it never with waking eyes; it gleamed almost brighter even than this Tower." Returning Elessar's smile, he continued. "Standing at its crown, at a balcony of alabaster, I looked to the West as we do now. I saw a ship, swan-necked, its sails of gossamer; he stood within, flanked by Mithrandir and the Lady of the Wood, and he held a star aloft in his hand."
With those words, Faramir sighed. "So I learned, my King, of the Ringbearer's departure."
