 The rider’s cloak streamed behind him, and his hood was thrown back; his golden hair flowed shimmering in the wind of his speed…. it appeared that white light was shining through the form and raiment of the rider, as if though through a thin veil.

 "He was tall and straight; his hair was of shining gold, his face fair and young and fearless and full of joy; his eyes were bright and clean, and his voice like music; on his brow set wisdom, and in his hand was strength.

Each of them took to himself a Silmaril, for they said: ‘Since one is lost to us, and but two remain, and we two alone of our brothers, so is it plain that fate would have us share the heirlooms of our father.’

Yet Maglor still held back, saying: ‘If Manwë and Varda themselves deny the fulfilment of an oath to which we named them in witness, is it not made void?’

And Maedhros answered: ‘But how shall our voices reach to Ilúvatar beyond the Circles of the World? And by Ilúvatar we swore in our madness, and called the Everlasting Darkness upon us, if we kept not our word. Who shall release us?’

‘If none can release us,’ said Maglor, ‘then indeed the Everlasting Darkness shall be our lot, whether we keep our oath or break it; but less evil shall we do in the breaking.’

The fairy tales of Mirkwood

When winter comes, the winter wild
that hill and wood shall slay;
When trees shall fall and starless night
devour the sunless day;
I’ll look for thee, and call to thee;
I’ll come to thee again!

Caranthir The Dark

Now the people of Caranthir dwelt furthest east beyond the upper waters
of Gelion, about Lake Helevorn under Mount Rerir; and they
climbed the heights of Ered Luin and looked eastward in wonder, for wild and
wide it seemed to them were the lands of Middle-earth.

And thus it was that Caranthir’s people came upon the Dwarves,

but

no great love was there between them; for the Dwarves were secret and
quick to resentment, and Caranthir was haughty and scarce concealed his scorn
for the unloveliness of the Naugrim, and his people followed their lord.
