Nostalgia

There had been a time...

... when twilight stretched endless, stars spattered in milky array across an eternal night. He remembered the brilliance of Wilwarin’s wings and Menelmacar’s belt shining and Valacirca swinging sickle-edged, a northern warning. White in the grass beneath Eglador’s grey branches bloomed the night-flower niphredil, springing up under Lúthien’s feet.

Fishing for starlight in the Esgalduin’s shimmering depths. He remembered that too.

And now –

– the stars faded nightly into glimmering pinpricks, extinguished by day –

Below rushed the Bruinen, foam-flecked in the summer sun. “I preferred twilight,” admitted Erestor. “Melinna laughs at me. But now everything is illuminated.”
