Guinevere is a guest of Tom Bombadil.
Thanks for these most useful hints, Heren Istarion!

This is mostly guesswork, apart from your hints I only managed to find out the last two words = my feet. ( zemlia = land ?)
So I assume it is Aldarion talking to Meneldil:
"It has come upon me again, Atarinya. Eighteen years is a long fast. I can scarce lie still in a bed, or hold myself upon a horse, and the hard ground of stone wounds my feet."
Another question: what does Bolshoi mean ?? ( I have heard of the Bolshoi theatre...)
Yes! "wish-fulfilment dreams" we spin to cheat
our timid hearts, and ugly Fact defeat!
