This is driving me insane! It looks so familiar! Well, considering alaklondewen hasn't answered either, this must be a tough one for everyone. Perhaps you could fill in a couple blanks if no one gets it by tonight.

"Green are those fields in the songs of my people; but they were dark then, grey wastes in the blackness before us. And over the wide land, trampling unheeded the grass and the flowers, we hunted our foes through a day and a night, until we came at the bitter end to the Great River at last."

"There at last when the mallorn-leaves were falling, but spring had not yet come, she laid herself to rest upon Cerin Amroth; and there is her green grave, until the world is changed, and all the days of her life are utterly forgotten by men that come after, and elanor and niphredil bloom no more east of the sea."

Earwen, it would be better to PM Legolas rather than posting here as, being a busy mod, he might very well not see your post.

In any event, it looks very much to me as if Gilraen is correct and, since I believe that she is away for a few weeks, I would suggest that anyone may now post a new question. [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

It certainly has been a while since the last quote, so I think I'll jump in and post a new one! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Quote:
'____,' he answered, 'you are not yet ______, and I was _________ to tend you with ________ ____. You should not have _____ from your ___ for _____ days yet, or so I was ______. I ___ you to go ____.'
It might be a bit too easy even now, so I think I'll wait to post a hint.
