It is quite clever, isn't it? I feel like the tale-in-a-tale conceit is one Tolkien quite enjoyed but never did enough with, so it's nicely fitting. Using the Rohirrim for the story was a good...

Okay, here we go:

Red for fire, burning fierce
From forge to raging final cost.

Okay, so:



"Danceless and dishless" leaves a spoon, on a table. The 'dull' part could be a reference to the spoon in the song being of silver, I guess?
