The land where the Elves awoke (acc. to BoLT1)
Those were lands "where the pinewoods murmur unceasingly".
|........a place deep in a vale surrounded by pine-clad slopes; its floor is a pool of wide water and its roof the twilight set with Varda's stars. There had Oromë heard the awaking of the Eldar, and all songs name that place Koivië-néni or the Waters of Awakening.
Now all the slopes of that valley and the bare margin of the lake, even the rugged fringes of the hills beyond, me filled with a concourse of folk who gaze in wonder at the stars, and some sing already with voices that are very beautiful.
