Oh, today is a special day. Let’s jump in.
First off, Quickbeam finishes singing about his lost rowans. Merry and Pippin fall asleep for the night as he does so.
The next day…well, nothing much happens. They can hear the chanting of the Entmoot going on and on, but the two hobbits and Quickbeam stay in his home because the air is cold.
On the third day, the Entmoot ends. Much can be heard in the morning, but a sudden silence in the afternoon makes everyone take notice. A crash and shout cuts through the forest, and the ents can be heard marching off to war. Quickbeam grabs Merry and Pippin; it’s time to go.
Oh, so Quickbeam finishes that song? Let’s do that.
Tolkien Songs In Real Life:
Half yesterday, half today. Here’s the end:
“Upon your head how golden-red the crown you bore aloft!
O rowan dead, upon your head your hair is dry and grey;
Your crown is spilled, your voice is stilled for ever and a day.
O Orofarnë, Lassemista, Carnimírië!”
Just as sad as I predicted, I present:
Trees, Trees, Trees, Let Me Give You My Life pt.2
(Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want – The Smiths)
Oh, that was nice.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
Remember when I said that the ents were marching off to war? Well, they’re chanting, too. Now let’s do that song.
“We come, we come with roll of drum: ta-runda runda runda rom!
We come, we come with horn and drum: ta-rūna rūna rūna rom!”
Doubling the pleasure and doubling the fun, I present:
Ents Will Rock You pt.1
(We Will Rock You – Queen)
Aw, yeah. I wanted to use that song so hard for this, and I did. Just you wait until tomorrow.
I won’t talk too much about that one. Suffice it to say that it’s a war chant. What else could I do?
So that’s two short songs, and, honestly, most of the page. Not much else happens when there’s literally a paragraph dedicated to telling you that an entire day passed without anything important to say.
Words My Computer Didn’t Like:
For some reason or another, “rūna” doesn’t appear to be a problem. I am highly skeptical of this development.
“Bregalad picked up the hobbits and strode from his house.”
