Story Notes:

This is a poem in praise of a canonical event of the First Age. It was written for the LOTR Community challenge on LiveJournal, which asked for an "Ode to Arda". My personal prompt was "mist/kissed" (it was not a requirement to use this for a rhyming couplet).
I've dropped the regular metre that might be expected of an ode entirely, but I have tried to retain the three-part structure that classical odes sometimes have. 
Also, as Tolkien says of Nienna, my song of praise turned to lamentation before its end...

Also, with thanks to bunn for a comment about Fingolfin that inspired the choice of subject.
