Translator's note: When Círdan says "What a pleasant day" he's actually referring to the notional period of time between waking up and going to sleep, since as yet there's no Sun in the sky, so Middle-earth lies under a perpetual starry night-time. (Though having said that, I wonder if the stars already rise and set every 24 hours, or if they're stationary in the sky?)
The elves he's talking to are my Generic Teleri chibis. :)
