The Lost Road by Silinde Ar Feinie

A name for the Straight Road, the memory as it were that the World holds of what it was before the ways were bent. To those that are permitted to sail upon it, the earth seems to fall away beneath the water, while the water grows thin and milky, until at last the air ceases and they sail into black space overlaid with ghostly white waves; and then the air returns and real water slaps the sides, and Tol Eressëa is reached.

The Lost Road is also the name of a time-travel work that Tolkien only wrote four chapters of, but various fragments, songs and outlines give a pretty clear picture of the envisaged structure.
