I very much doubt that he says it any longer. That was Andrew Lang, quoted by Tolkien in On Fairy-Stories.

Right once again, Squatter - and "says" is literary, meaning that he still speaks to us through his works today! [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img] Your turn!

Here's a useful one for explaining my chat-room departures:

Is that from the song about the Inn? The one that goes:

There is an Inn, a merry old Inn,
Beneath an old gray hill
And there they brew a beer so brown
The Man in the Moon himself came down
One night to drink his fill

I think the verse that contains the line "It's after three." is near the end.

Yep, I found it in that poem,

While the landlord shook the Man in the Moon:
'It's after three!' he said.

That's the bit I was looking for. It was indeed the landlord to the Man in the Moon from The Man in the Moon stayed up too late in The Adventures of Tom Bombadil. The convention we've been following here is to name the speaker, the person addressed and the work from which the quotation came. Completing the quote is optional.

Anyway, it's your turn Narduewen.

both in The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth, Beorhthelm's Son. Appropriately, it's midnight as I write this...

I'll have a go, may I?

It may be Firiel to elven mariners stating her inability to follow them, though they were apt to take her along:

Quote:
The oars were stayed. They turned aside:
'Do you hear the call, Earth-maiden?
Friel! Friel!' they cried.
'Our ship is not full-laden.
One more only we may bear.
Come! For your days are speeding.
Come! Earth-maiden elven-fair,
our last call heeding.'

Friel looked from the river-bank,
one step daring;
then deep in clay her feet sank,
and she halted staring.
Slowly the elven-ship went by
whispering through the water:
'I cannot come' they heard her cry.
'I was born Earth's daughter!'

You most certainly may - it's great to have the thread's founder looking in again, HI! Too often "I cannot come" has been your motto! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] You are right, of course, it is Friel. Go ahead with a new one.

That's the Sea Serpent, on waking from a nightmare unintentionally brought on by the hapless Artaxerxes in Roverandom. The same phrase is shouted at the PAM by the mer-folk to make him cast the unfortunate spell.

Well, I did look for it in Roverandom and in Farmer Giles, since it sounded like it could have been there, but couldn't find it. Will you give a clue please?
