Just the logic of them having to cross several to get to the Shire.

Anduin (Radagast said they had crossed it. At least, in the BBC version I think he did).

Baranduin?

Geography is not my strong point, whichever world I'm in.

Well, it's the right answer. The specific reference is this:

I saw him ride over seven streams
Over waters wide and grey...


From the lament for Boromir. The internet thinks it refers to seven rivers between Minas Tirith and Rivendell, but I think it probably refers to seven actual streams close to Tharbad (after which point he lost his horse anyway). The point is, we know the Nazgul also forced the crossing at Tharbad, so they must have crossed the same seven streams.

Nine over seven. And thread over to Pervinca.

I thought the reference was probably that song, but I wondered if it was the Lament for Gandalf. I didn't check it - sorry. I thought you wanted me to find a map and count the rivers, and I didn't have time.

Ok then.

I lie low.
Concealed.
But piquant.

Where are peppers mentioned in the books!?

Lying low doesn't mean under the earth or in a valley or anything like that.

No. Not a person.

But it's *connected* to one particular character.

Zirak-Zigil? It's piquant, as in peaky.

No ... piquant refers to taste.

Not a shrub.

It's mentioned in 'Of Herbs And Stewed Rabbit,' and only there, I believe.

I see......You're full of suprises.

"....and hidden at the bottom of the pack in a flat wooden box a dwindling treasure, some salt....."

and that's my answer.

YES!

Sam's box of salt, at the bottom of his pack.

I said it was connected to a character!

Over to you.

Then let me post something that was inspired by a poem one of my friends wrote.

Woe upon them
Children who hold the helm
Woe, woe, before the dark foe
Whose will follows them high and low

Woe upon them, woe upon him
Who dared to oppose him and his whim
Woe upon them, forlorn in their plight
They couldn't win that fight

I know. I was referring to those specific words, but adding a question mark and a 'Hmmmmm' to show that they DON'T apply to THIS round thing.

Not Galadriel's Mirror. (Is it round? I didn't know).
