‘Come with me, Frodo!’ cried the dwarf…. 'I would not have you go without seeing Kheled-zâram.’ He ran down the long green slope.Frodo followed slowly, drawn by the still blue water….
Beside the standing stone Gimli halted…. 'This pillar marks the spot where Durin first looked in the Mirrormere,’ said the dwarf. 'Let us look ourselves once, ere we go!’
They stooped over the dark water. At first they could see nothing. Then slowly they saw the forms of the encircling mountainsmirrored in a profound blue, and the peaks were like plumes of white flame above them; beyond there was a space of sky. There like jewels sunk in the deep shone glinting stars, though sunlight was in the sky above. Of their own stooping forms no shadow could be seen.
'O Kheled-zâram fair and wonderful!’ said Gimli. 'There lies the Crown of Durin till he wakes. Farewell!’
