Quellë

Quellë was the Quenya name for "fading", or late autumn; it was the fourth of the six "seasons" in the Reckoning of Rivendell. Alternatively it was also called Lasse-lanta or "leaf-fall". Quellë corresponded to the 54 days between modern 8 October and 30 November. In Sindarin, Quellë was called Firith and Lasse-lanta was called Narbeleth (which meant "sun-waning").[1]
