Of the Feast of Reuniting at the pools of Ivrin it is said that the joy of that feast was long remembered in later days of sorrow.

Story Notes:

This is a poem in praise of a canonical event of the First Age, the Mereth Aderthad.

It was written for the LOTR Community challenge for April 2017, 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.
