Varda is standing high upon Taniquetil,
overlooking the worlds. All the way to the North her bright eyes
penetrate the icy black waters that cover the ruins of Utumno and
Angband. To the South she can overlook the ravines where once Morgoth
and Ungoliant celebrated their foul alliance to wreak havoc upon
Telperion and Laurelindë. And even can she see all the way past Lake
Cuivienen the Fair, glittering in the gloom of the East.
It is to the east that Varda is watching, when
Manwë comes up the stairs and goes to stand by his lady. Suddenly
Varda's beautiful face is twisted with anxiety and sadness.
Manwë: "What is it dearest? Ill tidings? Are the Forces of the Dark gaining ground again?"
Varda: "No Manny, you are standing on my toes!"
