Oh dear by Himring

Rated G
[Reviews - 1]
Table of Contents

A piece written for the LOTR Community challenge for April, which asked for a riddle in poetic form. I chose the element that was given me as the subject and the solution.

This is a little silly (sorry!) but, I hope, funny and anyway based in canon. In fact, if you recognize the canon source, you will know the solution right away.

Also, it is perhaps not quite poetry, but there is rhyme.
