I. Love. Limericks! Those, and haikus, are my favorite form of poetry... nicely done!

These are great!

Author Reply: Thanks! I'm glad you liked them!

Ah, I can never resist a limerick! These are great fun, Dreamflower…my favorites are the two S-B verses, and Gandalf’s. I once wrote a Gandalf-on-the-bridge limerick too:


Nine Walkers, while out on a stroll
Met a balrog, some orcs and a troll
When Gandalf went down
Strider said with a frown
"Who knew the dwarves’ bridge was a toll?”

So there’s an online rhyming dictionary? (I’m a nosy review-reader too!) What’s its URL, pray tell?

Author Reply: LOL! That's great! I love it!

Here's one that I use:

Quite an accomplishment, you realize. Thank you so much.

Author Reply: Thank you for the compliment! They were a lot of fun!

Cute! I liked the last line of the Strider's. It reminded me of a line from Buffy: I laugh in the face of danger... then I hide until it goes away. :) Strider would never hide of course. He meets it head on every time. Merry's and Pip's was cute too. Now see, if they were like Sam, they would have had a needle and thread on hand to fix their breeches. :D

Author Reply: *grin* Strider and Buffy, huh? Actually, I think I came across a LotR/Buffy crossover once. Strange, to say the least!

LOL! You're right--Sam carries everything except the kitchen sink--and rope.

Very cleverly done! Gave me a good giggle too - how do you think of them?

Author Reply: Well, the first line just comes to me, but then I pull up the on-line rhyming dictionary and go from there. The only two I didn't have to do that for were Lobelia's and Strider's, which just came to me.

Wow, these are really very clever. I especially love the ones about Gandalf, Lobelia, Otho, and Pip and Merry with their pants ripped! :) Thank you for sharing these.

Author Reply: Thank you for the kind words!

They were fun!

*laughing* very lovely indeed!

I especially liked the "no needle to sew up the rip" and Lobelia's claim to fame.

Thanks for the smile on a rushed morning, when I only signed on to print out a map to where we're going!

Author Reply: Thanks! Glad they gave you a giggle!

Well, of course they had to rhyme. I kept thinking of GW's fic about the Ent-draught, LOL! And I couldn't resist Lobelia!

(I know what you mean--I've done the exact same thing...)

I couldn't leave you to do all the work so how is this!!!

There was once a lady called Arwen.
The most lovely Elf, but then
in love she did fall
with the best man of all,
the Elessar, the Estel of all men.

Not very good I know but my very first try at putting something down on internet 'paper' *Blushes and sneaks off hoping nobody else reads reviews apart from the author!*

Author Reply: Hey! That's not bad! It scans and it rhymes--that's all anyone asks out of a limerick--and it makes sense, too!

You did very well!

(By the way, I usually read other people's reviews. I'm horribly nosy.)

Queen GaladrielReviewed Chapter: 6 on 9/20/2006
*grins* I love them! Especially Merry and Pippin and Lotho Pimple! LOL!
God bless,

Author Reply: Thank you! *grin* Did you know that there's only three words that rhyme with "pimple"? (simple, dimple and wimple.)
