I may give a hint by quoting Pink Floyd, I suppose:

"the wall was too high, he could not break through..."

he in the quote being Prosaist. But he was trying to avoid the necessity of breaking through the newly built wall anyways.

Well, additional help, as it may be:

Prosaist in question was apt not to force his way through the wall, though he had appropriate means to, but to negotiate the share of what was behind the wall. The person he was addressing was behind said wall too.

Ah, so Bard is the Prosaist then. I haven't the book to hand, but it goes something like:


Quote:
"Thieves we are not," said Bard. "We will give you your own in return for our own"
Edit: Ah, now I have my book. The quote is:


Quote:
We are not thieves," Bard answered. "Your own we will give back in return for our own."

Question Next up

Thanks HI.

This may take some searching:


Quote:
"Nay, nay, 'tis possible you may not ask me, slave," she whispered. "You haven't missed our solitary silence outside the Tower of Cirith Ungol. A wilderness of giants: it wasn't there that Saruman went, but has no wish to leave. They wanted to do more then than find a camel."

I second that motion - it sounds like it should be a Gollum quote, beginning with "yes, yes" and including "master", but I have searched and not been able to find it.

Pipe Hmm, seems like a hint may well be in order.

The quote is not from LotR, though it was said during the period covered by that book ...

Aaaaaaaaaaaah!! Tricksy Master Saucy!! I found it in the Unfinished Tales, 'The Hunt for the Ring' - Wormtongue is speaking to the Lord of the Nazgűl:
Quote:
'Yea, yea, verily I can tell you, Lord,' he said. 'I have overheard their speech together in Isengard. The land of the Halflings: it was thence that Gandalf came, and desires to return. He seeks now only a horse.'

That's Sam on Weathertop, speaking of the lay The Fall of Gil-Galad:

Ah, this one is familiar, though it took me a few minutes to realize that it's from the Silmarillion. Beren says to Thingol:

The speakers are the dwarves singing their little victory song.
Now for the next versified roundabout:

Stillness will be on her naked scalp,
The dunes afar from her will dim,
Close by, we heard her weak and foul,
Come crawling like a rat.

o la la. thanks . as I'm stuck on chapter 15 of the Hobbit, in your recent quizzing you seem to drool (if I may be allowed to use an expression) over Legolas . So Legolas it is, with the song of Nimrodel:

Quote:
The wind was in his flowing hair,
The foam about him shone;
Afar they saw him strong and fair
Go riding like a swan.

lol, that was just about as uninentional as your chapter 15 fixation...unintentional but maybe not entirely meaningless, as any psychoanalyst would not lose the opportunity to warn us...

Anyway - you're up!

Eye Eureka!

First I got this:


Quote:
Cold icy earth may be struck with difficulty
Down our empty irrelevance. Are we genuinely happy?
Water is no better, when no drink we buy
Warm earth is better if struck under our feet
Which, of course, made no sense at all. But then it led me to this:


Quote:
O! Water cold we may pour at need
down a thirsty throat and be glad indeed;
but better is Beer, if drink we lack,
And Water Hot poured down the back.
Which is one of Bilbo's favourite bath-songs, as sung by Pippin at Crickhollow. And, by Jove, I do believe it's the answer.

Question Next up

How about this rather sad piece:


Quote:
But then I see his silent hands,
And distinctly oblivious to the creeping chill,
Humourless I climb,
And eventually maintaining equilibrium
I pull him onboard, but shallow he breathes,
And finds his solemn death
As he had expected, Don’t be silly!

that took a while, but I've found it nevertheless

And when He hears their tapping feet,
Or faintly feels the sudden heat,
With smile
HE dives,
And promptly turning upside-down
He tips them off, and deep they drown,
And lose their silly lives
To their surprise,
Be wise!

well thank you

here we go again:

Quote:
Water, water stone and sand
Swell and stifle! Whistling rifle!
Darken the day for them to despair
Derry dol!

Sow and reap us, gather and heap us
After cheeks pale and their breaths rale
After horn shows and hide peels
Meat denses and blood heals
And fires leap
Over the earth!

And giants will live!
So dark the day for them to despair
Derry dol!
Dol derry dol!
Derry dol!

Eye And the inverse of derry dol ...

... is of course ya hey!

It's the Goblin's song while setting fire to the trees in which Gandalf, Bilbo, Thorin and Co took had taken refuge:


Quote:
Burn, burn tree and fern!
Shrivel and scorch! A fizzling torch
To light the night for our delight,
Ya hey!

Bake and toast ‘em, fry and roast ‘em!
Till beards blaze, and eyes glaze;
Till hair smells and skins crack,
Fat melts, and bones black
In cinders lie
Beneath the sky!

So dwarves shall die,
And light the night for our delight!
Ya hey!
Ya-harri-hey!
Ya hoy!
