'Snow' - challenge: The First Snow

Title: The First Snow
Author: Kortirion
Character: Haldir, Celeborn
Rating: G
Source: Post LotR
Disclaimer: Tolkien regretted it too.

Haldir, in all his long years, had never seen it here – silver on gold. Huge snowflakes drifted to kiss the Mallorns as gently as a new lover. He sought out his lord, finding Celeborn watching the snow impassively. He saw him stretch out his arms, to stand motionless, head back, catching the delicate ice on hands and sleeves. Haldir watched in silence until Celeborn turned to him, his face wetted by more than snow.

"She is gone, Haldir. She has passed into the West. See? We are but part of their world now. It is truly the time of Men."
