But the land of Aman and EressŰa of the Eldar were taken away and removed beyond the reach of Men for ever. And Andor, the Land of Gift, N˙menor of the Kings, Elenna of the Star of Eńrendil, was utterly destroyed. For it was nigh to the east of the great rift, and its foundations were overturned, and it fell and went down into darkness, and is no more. And there is not now upon Earth any place abiding where the memory of a time without evil is preserved. For Il˙vatar cast back the Great Seas west of Middle-earth, and the Empty Lands east of it, and new lands and new seas were made; and the world was diminished, for Valinor and EressŰa were taken from it into the realm of hidden things.
