'In Lórien are [Irmo's] gardens in the land of the Valar, and they are the fairest of all places in the world, filled with many spirits. Estë, the gentle, healer of hurts and of weariness is his spouse. Grey is her raiment; and rest is her gift. She walks not by day, but sleeps upon an island in the tree-shadowed lake of Lórellin.' - Valaquenta, The Silmarillion.
