To the south they're bounded through magic, to the west by means of a mountain, and to the north by way of the voice and anger of the Polar wind. Like a very good wall is the mountain to the west. It comes up out of the gap and is going down into the space back, and it really is named Poltarnees, Beholder of Ocean. To the northward pink rocks, gentle and naked of soil, and with none speck of moss or herbage, slope as much as the very lips of the Polar wind, and there's not anything else there via the noise of his anger.

And within the sunlit areas of the weald and within the wold's darkish areas, afar from the track of towns and from the dance of the towns afar, they make there the song of the rustic locations and dance the rustic dance.
