Yeah, here is another quickie inspired by Huinesoron's riddle


We caught our prey
During the night so grey
But with the dawn of the day
Forever we'll stay

Now can you find the way
And who we are say?

Whether the riddle-maker or riddle guesser
The riddles are still well-made
And mine is well-made, little fella
As well-made as yours


And so they said, and so they said
Bert and Tom, and Will
But now the sun shines over their statues
And no one can hear.....






Well done, and over to you

I can't think of one right now ... would anyone else like to try? I have a few deadlines making annoying noises at me.

I am giving people 48 hours to step up, if no one does, I will again.

Well, to avoid you having to do two in a row, here's one in a rather different style:

Quote:
I saw this thing once:
A pillar dark with eyes of flame,
A pillar bright with sword of light,
And between them a fall of silver,
Of hope lost and hope reclaimed.

I haven't forgotten about this riddle, I just don't have any good ideas. I love the way it sounds though, it's great imagery!

To push things forward though, how about Sauron's fight with Gil-Galad and Elendil.

None of those people are invol-- no, wait.

None of those people are presen-- hang on.

None of those people are physically present for the incident (and it is a specific incident) in question.

That'll do it. ^_^

Possibly Frodo looking afar from Amon Hen? Not sure what the pillar bright is, but tower dark sounds like "an eye in the Dark Tower that did not sleep".

You're actually... really close with that, despite being in completely the wrong place. ^_^ You've definitely hit the themes correctly, and the right persons are... let's say referenced, for (un)clarity.
