Re: Of the Amazing Song Contest and Its Continuation


well, leave Morgoth aside and play chess with ME muahahahah

It was Gondorian host on a field of Cormallen.

A story must be told or there'll be no story, yet it is the untold stories that are most moving

Re: Chess

15 minutes must be some sort of record Actually, I'd be honoured to play chess with you, considering I am absolutely hopeless at it. Morgoth has quite a temper when he loses though, and he is worse than me. :/ Hmm. That is corrrrrrrrect, anyway. Continue!

Re: Chess


Allahu aqbar, neither am I good at chess. So. let us stick around song contest

So:

Quote:
Troll sat alone on his seat of stone,
And munched and mumbled a bare old bone;
For many a year he had gnawed it near,
For meat was hard to come by.
Done by! Gum by!
In a case in the hills he dwelt alone,
And meat was hard to come by.

Up came Tom with his big boots on.
Said he to Troll: 'Pray, what is yon?
For it looks like the shin o' my nuncle Tim,
As should be a-lyin' in graveyard.
Caveyard! Paveyard!
This many a year has Tim been gone,
And I thought he were lyin' in graveyard.'

'My lad,' said Troll, 'this bone I stole.
But what be bones that lie in a hole?
Thy nuncle was dead as a lump o' lead,
Afore I found his shinbone.
Tinbone! Thinbone!
He can spare a share for a poor old troll,
For he don't need his shinbone.'

Said Tom: 'I don't see why the likes o' thee
Without axin' leave should go makin' free
With the shank or the shin o' my father's kin;
So hand the old bone over!
Rover! Trover!
Though dead he be, it belongs to he;
So hand the old bone over!'

'For a couple o' pins,' says Troll, and grins,
'I'll eat thee too, and gnaw thy shins.
A bit o' fresh meal will go down sweet!
I'll try my teeth on thee now.
Hee now! See now!
I'm tired o' gnawing old bones and skins;
I've a mind to dine on thee now.'

But just as he thought his dinner was caught,
He found his hands had hold of naught.
Before he could mind, Tom slipped behind
And gave him the boot to larn him.
Warn him! Darn him!
A bump o' the boot on the seat, Tom thought,
Would be the way to larn him.

But harder than stone is the flesh and bone
Of a troll that sits in the hills alone.
As well set your boot to the mountain's root,
For the seat of a troll don't feel it.
Peel it! Heal it!
Old Troll laughed, when he heard Tom groan,
And he knew his toes could feel it.

Tom's leg is game, since home he came,
And his bootless foot is lasting lame;
But Troll don't care, and he's still there
With the bone he boned from its owner.
Doner! Boner!
Troll's old seat is still the same,
And the bone he boned from its owner!
A story must be told or there'll be no story, yet it is the untold stories that are most moving

Song Contest Continuation!

To continue with the song contest: <img src=wink.gif ALT="">

<blockquote>Quote:<hr> Grey as a mouse,
Big as a house,
Nose like a snake,
I make the earth shake,
As I tramp through the grass;
Trees crack as I pass.
With horns in my mouth
I walk in the South,
Flapping big ears.
Beyond count of years,
I stump round and round,
Never lie on the ground,
Not even to die.
Oliphaunt am I,
Biggest of all,
Huge, old and tall.
If ever you'd met me
You wouldn't forget me.
If you never do,
You won't think I'm true;
But old Oliphaunt am I,
And I never lie.<hr></blockquote>

Do you expect me to answer oliphaunt? Or Sam would suit you better?

One of my favorites


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!

Sigh...

It figures that by the time I get here, it's a song I don't know (though beautiful). It's not about Bilbo's return from his journey, he didn't go South. Is it from the Sil? I'm only to Beren and Luthien. (Come on, you can give a hint to a lonely, wretched traveler, can't you? *image of a little starving puppy looking up with big woebegotten eyes, begging for a tiny scrap*)

And Hard to Find To

Do not fear, little puppy! For I am here to save the day! That song had to be elvish, and as I couldn't find it anywhere in LotR OR the Sil, I turned the Hobbit. Ta Da! The Wood Elves singing to themselves while throwing the barrels into the water to float into Esgaroth. <img src=smile.gif ALT="">

Next Song

Righto, keep it rollin <img src=wink.gif ALT=""> Next song:
<blockquote>Quote:<hr> &quot;The wind was on the withered heath,
but in the forest stirred no leaf:
there shadows lay by night and day,
and dark things silent crept beneath.

The wind came down from mountains cold,
and like a tide it roared and rolled;
the branches groaned, the forest moaned,
and leaves were laid upon the mould.

The wind went on from West to East;
all movement in the forest ceased,
but shrill and harsh across the marsh
its whistling voices were released.

The grasses hissed, their tassels bent,
te reeds were rattling - on it went
o'er shaken pool under heavens cool
where racing clouds were torn and rent.

It passed the lonely Mountain bare
and swept above the dragon's lair:
there black and dark lay boulders stark
and flying smoke was in the air.

It left the world and took its flight
over the wide seas of the night.
The moon set sail upon the gale,
and stars were fanned to leaping light.<hr></blockquote>

That was always one of the more melodic ones. <img src=smile.gif ALT="">

Ai Ai indeed, sorry

Ok, next one to be chanted is one of my favourites too:

Quote:
He chanted a song of wizardry,
Of piercing, opening, of treachery,
Revealing, uncovering, betraying.
Then sudden Felagund there swaying,
Sang in a song of staying,
Resisting, battling against power,
Of secrets kept, strength like a tower,
And trust unbroken, freedom, escape;
Of changing and shifting shape,
Of snares eluded, broken traps,
The prison opening, the chain that snaps.
Backwards and forwards swayed their song.
Reeling foundering, as ever more strong
The chanting swelled, Felagund fought,
And all the magic and might he brought
Of Elvenesse into his words.
Softly in the gloom they heard the birds
Singing afar in Nargothrond,
The sighting of the Sea beyond,
Beyond the western world, on sand,
On sand of pearls on Elvenland.
Then in the doom gathered; darkness growing
In Valinor, the red blood flowing
Beside the Sea, where the Noldor slew
The Foamriders, and stealing drew
Their white ships with their white sails
From lamplit havens. The wind wails,
The wolf howls. The ravens flee.
The ice mutters in the mouths of the Sea.
The captives sad in Angband mourn.
Thunder rumbles, the fires burn-
And Finrod fell before the throne

Re: Ai!

The singers *in* the song are Finrod Felagund and Sauron. The singer of this excerpt from the Lay of Leithian I know not.

<h6>'Spring is all around you / and calls your name softly in the wind / Burning when the day is dying / she kills the rays of a boundless sun. / And falls after years of death / eternally on your tears of joy. / So feel, feel the hands of glory / that will lead you into a golden sea.' (Kirlian Camera, 'Ascension') </h6></p>

<img src="http://www.barrowdowns.com/images/posticons/redeye.jpg" align=absmiddle> Death to Technology!

Well, I had a really good one, but it was long, and after I spent so much time typing it, Dr. Watson came on w/his @#%$ errors and shut everything down,<img src=mad.gif ALT=">:"> and I don't want to write the whole thing again today, so you get a short, easy one instead:
<blockquote>Quote:<hr> Three Rings for the Elven-Kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.<hr></blockquote>
And don't say after the title page! I need who to whom when, and feel free to show off.

P.S. Where is c-o-c-k a cuss word?

The days are fated to be filled with marvels.</p>

You're right, Odysseus. Maybe I should've asked for all the places the couplet occurs, just to be more challenging...oh well.<img src=ohwell.gif ALT=":\"> Your turn!

P.S. Really? I've never heard it used like that before. I guess that shows how little I know on that subject...

The days are fated to be filled with marvels.</p>

You mean a man using post-scriptum prooves his vulgarity?
Nay, it could not be so! How about Gandalf using threeof those?

<img src="http://www.barrowdowns.com/images/posticons/redeye.jpg" align=absmiddle> P.S . . . .

I guess Gandalf's 3 P.S.'s were supposed to show how much of a hurry he was in, but it seems that for a wizard he writes lousy letters. Anyway --

Btw, HerenIstarion check the Quiz forum called &quot;Trivia&quot; (has a blue icon) -- were Sharku or I right about the unexpected party?

Also, is your name from JRRT? Who is it?

Neither 'he', nor 'she', but 'we' (or 'them') - 'order of wizards', meaning that I am all five of them at once (modesty is not one of my virtues, obviously

Ah -- Istari/Istarion, I get it.

I'll repeat my my quote in case it got lost in my disgression:

Olwe to Feanor refusing to give him telerian ships

Correct, H-I. I thought that was a tough one and might stump ppl for a while. Probably Olwė's only line in Silm.

Is that Gandalf talking about Sauron's return?

P.S. -- It's not the use of a P.S. that BW described as a vulgarity -- he was referring to the word asked about in KayQy's P.S.

Gandalf indeed, but not about Sauron
