4. A scorched descendant of Girion
5. It’s raining on the talan

Nice job BlackFox [In reply to] Can't Post

#4 Burnt Brand doesn't rhyme (in English) Unsure

These must be more difficult for you if English isn't your 1st language?

Good shots Rem (or Rem shots - Rim shots.. Ba Boom). . . [In reply to] Can't Post

#3 "Hose"? rhymes well but 'hose' is not a proboscis.. (mistype?)Cool
#9 "Slow Bilbo" sorta works, but there's a better one.
#11 Should be "Helm's Realms" to keep the rhyming words consecutive. But it works, so credit due. Wink
#14. Same as #11 - "A Dale Tale"

I originally thought of "A Cram lam" for #12, but "scram" works just as well.

Thanks for playing Smile

Not a mistype [In reply to] Can't Post

TBH, I was thinking about my early Animal Sciences classes where they said that a honey-bee's proboscis was sort of like a 'straw' or 'hose'.

2. A lone land depression = geez Louise
3. A Drúedan proboscis = a Wose nose

5. It’s raining on the talan = it's a wet flet?

6. A fair-haired siege engine = a blond Grond?
7. “Get lost, Gamgee!” = scram, Sam! (Frodo would NEVER tell Sam to scram)

9. A dull-witted Baggins =
10. Overcome the Rock =

11. Kingdoms of Hammerhand = the realm of Helm

15. Jack of all trades and mill owner = Handyman Sandyman

***

He was born of mortal frailty mixed with Elven fallen realm,
Comin’ home to a land he’d never been before.
Arvernian behind him, sailed the seas of Middle-earth,
You might say he didn’t know what lay in store.

When his wife came out to find him she'd been turned into a bird,
Upon her breast there shone a shining star,
So he took her to his bosom, and by morn her form returned,
And he shifted West to find the high Valar.

And in Valinor he went before the high,
In doing so, resigned himself to die.
Take up arms against the Shadow, asked he of the high,
of the Valar high. (Fight, fight the Shadow)
of the Valar high. (Fight, fight the Shadow)

13 out of 15. Hmmm - may be a new worlds record.

#2 rhymes but is not Tolkienesque...
#10 lots of good tries but there is a bolder boulder which
has a more sublime rhyme. Cool
