There lies the woods of Lothlórien! That is the fairest of all the dwellings of my people. There are not trees like the trees of that land. For in the autumn their leaves fall not, but turn to gold.

So still our songs in Mirkwood say. My heart would be glad if I were beneath the eaves of that wood, and it were springtime!Legolas in The Lord of the Rings
