Wow. Cirdan is a mystery, there but not fully known to us in the Silmarillion and less so even in LOTR. But Zimraphel brings him to life here, helps us understand his love for the Sea (and might I mention that that's one of the things I love about Elves: how much they love nature. It is one of the most different things about them in comparison to Men) and why he stayed through so many Ages. Beautiful, as usual.
