Interesting thoughts, Aiwendil and Hookbill! Another example occurs to me - at the beginning of TTT, when the three remaining members of the Fellowship sing their song after Boromir's death, there is no stanza for the East Wind. Gimli says:
Quote:
You left the East Wind to me, but I will say naught of it.
Aragorn answers:
Quote:
In Minas Tirith they endure the East Wind, but they do not ask it for tidings.
Apparently not only Men, even the Dwarves do not like the East.
