And yet – Another Tolkien word game Can't Post

Object: Take a Tolkien word (usually more than one word), (person, place, title, thing, etc.) and make an anagram (scramble) of one or more of the words into another “word”(s).
Then give a short description of your new “word”(s).
(As this is more difficult than many of my previous amusements, any book, movie, etc. is fair game.)

Examples:
Khazad-dum – Khazad-mud - The sludge left over from the mithril excavations at the bottom of Moria.

The Last Homely House – The Alt’s Homely House – The ill-kempt Hobbit hole of the Alt family.

He tarried there from errantry,
and melodies they taught to him,
and sages old him marvels told,
and harps of gold they brought to him.

A twofer: [In reply to] Can't Post

The white tree - He hit tweeter (when Denethor's golf shot went astry and struck a bird in the tree's branches).

Red arrow - War do err (appropriate).

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

subjugators of the harvests of Westfarthing.

NOTE Although we have received many super entries (more than expected, and all appreciated!), and interest now seems to wane somewhat - I, the Great & Powerful Bracegirdle and middling OP must once again give three smilies to BlackFox for efforts above and beyond. SmileSmileSmile

Should a Johnny-come-lately post a superior anagram a smiley face could be taken from The Fox. But as is - BlackFox is hereby declared top conqueror of this game. Congratulations!
