Fleet-footed and slim, the green-dyed figures slip between the springly trees. Trilling laughter like a lark’s reaches to the pulsing blue skies; fast footfalls beat quick upon the untilled earth.

So Tulkas and Nessa make their swift-hearted love. Shunning embrace and bedchamber, here in the mighty forest amid the running deer of Aman they make their union.

Nessa Fleet-foot and Tulkas the Laugher move though the greenly trees amid song and laugh and dance. Here are no witnesses, and as they run their race no eyes look upon their shining bodies.

Here they are content in themselves, away from death.
