Answers to the Middle Earth Verse Quiz

Here are the answers to the Middle Earth Verse Quiz!  And below are everyone's scores.  Thanks for playing!

1. c.  Woodland Elves
Down the swift dark stream you go
Back to lands you once did know!
Leave the halls and caverns deep,
Leave the northern mountains steep,
Where the forest wide and dim
Stoops in shadow grey and grim!

2. a.  Aragorn
The leaves were long, the grass was green,
     The hemlock-umbels tall and fair,
And in the glade a light was seen
     Of stars in shadow shimmering.
Tinuviel was dancing there
     To music of a pipe unseen,
And light of stars was in her hair,
     And in her raiment glimmering.

3. b.  Boromir
Seek for the Sword that was broken:
     In Imladris it dwells;
There shall be counsels taken
     Stronger than Morgul-spells.
There shall be shown a token
     That Doom is near at hand,
For Isildur’s Bane shall waken,
     And the Halfling forth shall stand.

4. b.  Bilbo
When winter first begins to bite
     and stones crack in the frosty night,
when pools are black and trees are bare,
     ‘tis evil in the Wild to fare.

5. c.  Sam
The finest rockets ever seen:
they burst in stars of blue and green,
or after thunder golden showers
came falling like a rain of flowers.

6. c.  Gandalf
Tall ships and tall kings
     Three times three,
What brought they from the foundered land
     Over the flowing sea?
Seven stars and seven stones
     And one white tree.

7. a.  Eomer
Out of doubt, out of dark to the day’s rising
I came singing in the sun, sword unsheathing.
To hope’s end I rode and to heart’s breaking:
Now for wrath, now for ruin and a red nightfall!
