One Saturday I got soo board and it was raining. I ended up memerizing the lay of Luthien and a lot of The Pyre of Dethethor and The Steward and the King chapters 'cause I read them soo much. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]
Still remember most of it.

The leaves were long,
the grass was green,
the hemlock umberles tall and fair,
and in a glade a light was seen,
Tinuviel was dancing there.

Question

Is there anyone who hasn't memorized the Ring poem? When ever I'm bored I either start memorizing LOTR poems/songs or start chanting them.

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the darkness shall spring;
Renewed shall be the blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.


That's really scary that I know that by heart. [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

I recite Lotr poems, too. I know the Ring poem, Aragorn's poem that was written for him by Bilbo, the Lament for Boromir, The road goes ever on and on, and the poems that Galadriel sent as messages to Aragorn and Gimli by heart. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] And I wasn't even bored when I memorized them! I did it for fun! [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

I also recite poetry

The road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began
now far ahead the road has gone
and I must follow if I can
Pursuing it with eager feet
untill it joins some larger way
where many paths and errands meet
and wither then? I cannot say

The road goes ever on and on
out from the door where it began
now far ahead the road has gone
Let others follow who it can
Let them a journey new begin
but i at last with weary feet
will head tward the lighted inn
my evening rest and sleep to meet

the Lament for Boromir
My hat goes off to you. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Once, whilst bored, I tried to recite FotR extended DVD in its entirety. I didn't get it all, but I got a fair share of it (up to the Council of Elrond).

I think the funniest thing I ever did was during Christmas last year when we were wrapping presents. I was pulling wrapping paper from a roll when the entire load of paper came off and I was left holding an empty cardboard roll. Trying to think of something to save myself from the embarrassment that was slowly mounting as everyone stared at me, I lifted the stick above my head and shouted, "For Gondor! Hail the White City!" It didn't save me from embarrassment, but it made people laugh. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] I am known in some parts now as the Warrior of Wrapping-Paper Rolls.

I've also, from boredom, named my "night light" the phial of Elendil. It has a sensor that makes it turn on whenever it gets dark. Anyway, those are just some things I've done while bored.

Hmm, forgot that my PS2 memory card is named "Ring" and I call it my "precious" many times. It hardly ever leaves my side (which I'm sure isn't healthy, but, hey, I can't part with it!) and there's been times when I lose it that I go ballistic. I'm really pathetic, I know.

I memorized this much of frodos bree poem:


Quote:
There is an Inn a merry old in,
Beneath an old grey hill,
and there they brew a beer so brown,
the man in the moon himself came down,
one night to drink his fill.

The ostler keeps a tipsy cat,
who plays a five string fiddle,
Up and down he runs his bow,
Now squeaking high now purring low,
Now sawing in the middle!

The landlord has a little dog,
whose mighty fond of jokes
and when theres good cheer among the guests,
ke cocks an ear to all the jests,
and laughs until he chokes!

They also keep a horned cow,
proud as any queen,
but music turns her head like ale,
makes her wave her tufted tail
and dance across the green!
Plus four verses of Luthien and Beren, the ring poem and gil galads thingy...I did it for fun 2! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

I got really bored in my Geography class once, so I memorised the Lay of Leithian from the Sil. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

He chanted a song of wizardry,
of piercing, opening, of treachery,
revealing, uncovering, betraying,
then sudden Felagund there swaying
sang in answer a song of staying...

I know most of the LotR poems/ songs etc. off by heart. And most of the book. I will sit there at the end of exams and use the spare paper to write out, say, the council of Elrond or something.
And I always sing the bath song when I ahve a bath.
Sing hey for the bath at the close of day
that washes the warey mud away
a loon is he that will not sing
O! Water Hot is a noble thing

Sweet is the sound of the pouring rain
and the brook that leaps from hill to plain
But better than rain and rippling stream
is Water Hot that smokes and steams

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

Sweet is the water that leaps on high
in a fountain white beneath the sky
But never did fountain sound so sweet
as splashing Hot Water with my feet!

See... I'm sad. I even made up my own version of the I sit song.
you know
I sit beside the fire and think...

I once put music to the words of "I Sit Beside the Fire and Think." I think it turned out quite well actually.
But generally, when I daydream, I'ts me with a bunch of grenades and an AK-47 a tthe siege of Helm's Deep. And then I start wondering if the bullets would actually penetrate an ork's hide, but that's just me...

When I'm lying in bed and I can't get to sleep, I try to recite FotR, I usually get up to about the Weathertop scene when my mum comes in and says "What ARE you doing? Go to sleep for goodness sake!"

Oh, don't even get me started..... But yeah, I reinact scenes from all the books, and I memorized the Ring Poem, and Galadriel's monologe, and just about every line of Pippin's, and most of the Sindarin lines, and, yeah, I have no life. Oh, and I've taken to wearing my sword, Sting, around everywhere, if that counts.....

When I can't get to sleep I lie in my bed and think of funny parts of TT and FotR. Last week I was thinking of the part in TT when Faramir says "What did they steal?" and Gollum looks at him and says "My Precious! AAAHHH!" I can't help it but I find that so funny. So I was lying in bed laughing my head off. I'm sure my mom was wondering what the hell was wrong with me.

And whenever I am bored I run Two Towers or Fellowship of the Ring in my head. Last week at Cadets I was running the Fellowship through my head while we were on the parade square. Mind you, we stood there for about an hour.

When I get bored, I get into weird FOTR conversations with people. Last time we had a debate over whether the ancient Roman army could have beaten up the Uruk army in the Helm's Deep scene in TTT. THen we wondered what would have happened if Darth Vader joined Sauron, and Yoda joined the Fellowship. That is the extreme bordom phase. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

I have a bunch of 1970's calendars that I hang in my room that are illustrations of parts of the books, whether it's the Hobbit, the Silm or LOTR. I have 2 hanging right now because one has the days coinciding with today's (as in it has March 13 on the same day as when it was this year) and the other calendar has a better picture. Most of these calendars incorperate the dates of when things happened, but the dates are wrong. I have the scripts that I made from watching the movies too much that I bring with me most everywhere, and I have memorized a bit of the poems.

I parodize poems. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

All that is gold glitters,
all those who wander are lost.
The old that is strong withers,
deep roots are touched by the frost.
From the fire an ash shall be woken,
A shadow from light shall spring.
Lost shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless shall never be king.

I did memorize the poem in Faramir's and Boromir's dream. And the Fall of Gil-Galad, and the Road goes Ever On, and a few others. "I sit beside the fire and think" is my favorite, I think. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Erm, well, I have this really dorky plastic "The One Ring" right. And I take it everywhere with me (it's on a chain like the one Frodo wears) and tell it everything while stroking it and calling it 'Preciousss'

"I sit beside the fire and think" is one of my favorites, too. I have my own melodies for practically all the LOTR songs. I don't just read them as poems, when it says that they were sung, I sing them. As I read the book, I try to remember my melody for a song every time I come across one, and then I sing it once out loud, then once in my head. It usually sounds a lot better in my head. [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img] I have also parodied several of the songs and poems so that they are about my school (I hate my school).

Not wierd at all, balrogman! I use a yardstick or a wrapping-paper roll. Usually I have a moving target, my brother likes sword fighting too. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] He has perfected the elf move. You know, the one during the Last Alliance scene when the orcs hit the line of elves and they twirl their swords all cool like. Yeah.

I've never thought of singing Tom's songs! Well, I'll have to try that!

Old Tom Bombadil is a merry fellow!
Blue his coat is and his boots are yellow!

Close, I think. From memory...

Tom Bombadil!
Tom Bombadilooooo!

YAY!

Hm...well when I cant sleep I imagine myself in ME meeting up with the Fellowship. And then beating up a bunch of Orcs. That's the life...
Yeahhh... I do that a lot. I have an alternate ego for the whole fantasizing bit too. Her name is Taph and she has a big black horse named Afreen.

... yes, I get bored easily. Sue me, a'ight? [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

i always draw on myself
Me too, all the time. One of my friends glances at my hand and then just rolls her eyes and says 'what have you drawn now?' Lately it's been Moria-style trees but I was also quite fond of a dragon I once drew. I hate washing it off afterwards, somethings take me uo to three particularly boring lessons.

I have an alter ego too! Her name is Elwing (no, NOT Agent Elrond's mom!) and she has a black pony named Dae and a hawk named Skeet.

Erm, well, I have this really dorky plastic "The One Ring" right. And I take it everywhere with me (it's on a chain like the one Frodo wears) and tell it everything while stroking it and calling it 'Preciousss'
Sounds like me.

LOL @balrogman. You rock! My friend recently bought a claymore off of Ebay and we went outside and chopped the crap outta a grapefruit. Then my friend came up with the idea of ordering a buncha them and running around town painting people in one of two colors and handing them a sword and telling them to kill the other color. Now that is MiddleEarthMayhem!
