My feet in life stepped
On lands now forgotten
Nmenor
My children are nameless
3 who's names Tolkien never gave us
Save one King begotten
Meneldil third King of Gondor
I have never been alone
In duty, death and life
Died with his father in the last alliance, ruled alongside his brother, stands in memory as an Argonath with Isildur
Not in one way but two
Did I rise to great heights.
Ruler of men and as an Argonath he is REALLY tall

Anrion is right! Good job Annunfuiniel. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

That was great one, Tar-Palantir! It's not easy to step in your boots but I'll have to try something...

I have served with my words
one high and one higher
but my eyes aren't on birds
for another is my desire
and last one more clue
I'm not forever true.

Ok, that's quite terrible (I hate that bird line!) but it's the best I could do.

I would also guess Grima first, but maybe it's Smeagol?

Cool. *Tar does the macarena for a few minutes* - heeeeeyyyyyy macarena...

I have walked
I have crawled
and I've never been chicken

I have sailed
I have ridden
and I've been bitten

I have climbed
I have faught
and I've worn others' clothes

I have spelunked
I have flown
and I've survived the foulest of foes

Do you know who I am?
Two more clues to be sure?
Je n'ai jamais t nu et
Je dteste porter des chaussures

fun, fun, fun, I hope you enjoy. Bonne chance!

Well, I'm kinda tired, so this will be in prose:

I fought against my people at an elven port, I gave the Healer a stone of Gondolin, and I turned down a chance to rule Middle-earth. Who am I?

Well, it has officially been ten days now.
I'll ask a new one:

Tall I stood,
but he was laid to rest
between the mountain-roots.
After a long, long test.

Or so I thought, till he was caught
And I had to do my very best.

"The mountain roots" make me think of Moria:

Is it Sam, when he thinks that Frodo has been Killed by Shelob?? The "tall" part doesn't fit,I know. Unless it means in spirit or courage. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

You're correct, Eruanna. And indeed not everything that was written was to be taken literally.

Could it be ...ummm... Melian of Thingol who had a daughter named Lthien who married a man who recovered a Silmaril which eventually brought about the fall of Thingol causing her to ...ahem...lower her girdle and abandon Doriath?

Thanks. Here is another one.

Welcome precious earth bound child, we met you first in your father's songs

and mother's smile by mountains wild, it's in this place you now belong.

Sadly you know of all these things and remember the gardens of years gone by

for you were born under silver sky to taste the land and breeze on high.

So sing one day to all of us, the songs you learned in lost days fair,

bring legend to life and words to trust, with wisdom, patience and strength, all shared.
