Hurrah! Okay, here goes:

"A woman may not do either?" asked Rosie. "But we, and not these who went before will destroy the truths of their delay. A blue sky, I ask. This was a small triviality of truth, though I flew it over the darkness of night!"
Good Luck!

"A man may do both", answered Aragorn. "For not we but those who come after us will make the legends of our time. The green grass, you say. That is a mighty matter of legend, though you tread it in the light of day".
Aragorn to Eomer, in Riders of Rohan. (It may not be entirely accurate because I don't have the book with me but it's one of my favourite quotes so I expect I got most of it right)

HI, that clue ("many frightened bearded persons") sent me off to search 'The Hobbit' for a quote, though I haven't found anything like it yet. Am I on the right track? I'm mostly guessing, since I'm not sure what the actual quote is. Would the opposite of tea leaves be coffee beans?

Feeling rather clueless, Esty

I think I found it.

Balin said to Bilbo:
"A little beer would suit me better, if it is all the same to you, my good sir."
But I don't understand the frightened people part...

sorry about the 'frigtened' and 'many', the hint applies to "another way round" thread really, the two got mixed up
a bit for me.

Yes, luthien-elvenprincess, that was Balin, pray proceed

No, but you are right in figuring out that 'ears' mean eyes.

I've been trying to solve this quote but am absolutely clueless so far. It doesn't even sound familiar when I try to figure out the antithesis of the words. Could you give a bit of help, please?

Thanks, HI - the "fine morning" got me on the right track. It's in the first chapter of The Hobbit:
Quote:
"Very pretty!" said Gandalf. "But I have no time to blow smoke-rings this morning. I am looking for someone to share in an adventure that I am arranging, and it's very difficult to find anyone.
I must confess, I always enjoy Bilbo's description of adventures:
Quote:
Nasty disturbing uncomfortable things! Make you late for dinner!

It is the first poetic piece to be 'backwarded' to the best of my knowledge. Well done, my lady

I like the verso so much, I'm inclined to give it here in full :

Quote:
Down the swift dark stream you go
Back to lands you once did know!

Leave the halls and caverns deep,
Leave the northern mountains steep,
Where the forest wide and dim
Stoops in shadow grey and grim!
Float beyond the world of trees
Out into the whispering breeze,
Past the rushes, past the reeds,
Past the marsh's waving weeds,
Through the mist that riseth white
Up from mere and pool at night!
Follow, follow stars that leap
Up the heavens cold and steep;
Turn when dawn comes over land,
Over rapid, over sand,
South away! and South away!
Seek the sunlight and the day,
Back to pasture, back to mead,
Where the kine and oxen feed!
Back to gardens on the hills
Where the berry swells and fills
Under sunlight, under day!
South away! and South away!
Down the swift dark stream you go
Back to lands you once did know!

Why thank you, kind wizard! You're quite right, of course - in fact, those lines show up twice, at the beginning and the end of that poem. Now I look forward to the next one.

Not the first!

sorry, couldn't help it.
This was not the first piece of backwarded poetry to grace this thread. Princess Esty came up with the backwarded Ent rhyme recited by Gandalf on page 6. Alright, commercial break over, you can now return to the game.

My apologies, Evisse

Let us build up a tradition than the following is 'backworded' (or 'anotherwayrounded', if you please) verse as well:

Quote:
Near under the warm clear plains, from towers high and peaks srouted not long before, they maybe here after dusk, to loose commonplace shining lead
Not to hard to crack, I suppose, but it was much fun to crypt

Question Phew!

And I thought it was difficult to guess an inverted quote. Making them is even harder!

So this one is probably rather easy. But it made me chuckle, so here goes:

hum, that took a lot of finding out before I finally got it (so it easier to contrive one, than guess one out, whatever you say, my good sir). So, (I hope it is) the Troll of Perry the Winkle:

I eat no kind of meat;

It still probably took you quicker to find it than it took me to find a quote which I could invert and still make sense of!

You are, of course, correct, Deadnight Chanter. Take it away ...

Hmmmmm, at first I thought it was the passage where Gandalf speaks of Frodo becoming like a glass filled with clear light, but that doesn't fit. A clue, please?
