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)

*Squeak* [In reply to] Can't Post

'Sarcy' has been UK slang for sarcastic for as long as I can remember - maybe not used anywhere else, but pretty widespread here.

As for Nain, as thought maybe he had carried a message to someone sometime.... *look of wide-eyed innocence* Angelic Or to put it another way, it's all I could think of....

Oh - would you prefer Nar car?

Good morning Master of the Teapot.... [In reply to] Can't Post

#1. Right 'sarcy' seems to be a slang abbreviation for sarcastic. and CREDIT DUE, although there is a slightly better rhyme.
BlackFox also brought up "sarky" (British informal for sarcastic, which would rhyme some better than "sarcy"?)Wink

16. YES, "Nar car" is what I had in mind as he was the "messenger Dwarf" that carried the news of the murder of Thror (along with a small bag of worthless coins).
I kinda threw that one in at the last minute as I wasn't sure on the pronunciation? Nár has an acute accent over the 'a'.

Beg pardon Mr Bracegirdle, Sir, and good morning! [In reply to] Can't Post

Sarcy and sarky is one and the same thing, begging your pardon, Sir. Being slang, no one ever writes it down 'cos no-one ever has to - I don't know if there is an official spelling. I just put sarcy with a 'c' 'cos it's an abbreviation of sarcastic. BlackFox went for sarky with a 'k' either 'cos he knows something I don't (this is entirely likely!) or because it is a better representation of how it's pronounced. But both spellings represent the same word and we pronounce exactly like the 'sarc' in 'sarcastic' - with a hard 'c'.

*Phew* ... curls up inside darkened teapot....
