Once little Pippin Took would stare enthralled at the great branched chandelier in the Brandy Hall banquet-room, shining wire and sparkling glass supporting a thousand candles; he could have gazed for hours, if Merry had let him.
Now Pippin beholds a city of chandeliers, hung amidst the broad branches of Lorien's trees. Above him Caras Galadhon, as their guides name it, sparkles and glows, its open-arched buildings encircled by floating starry lights, hazily reflected in burnished-silver branches. Pippin had thought his heart too heavy to raise ever again, but the elven-city shining before him lifts it on a gasp of wonder.
