But it is listed among her poems, according to Google. You would ignore this fact, though.

Anyway, Remember?

Pervinca Took 06-19-2019 03:46 PM

No, I would not ignore it. I have an extremely thick book containing all of her poems. I have read most of them, but not every single one. And I can't remember every single one. There are hundreds of them.

'Remember' is the right answer, but can you explain the Tolkien reference?

Pervinca Took 06-19-2019 03:49 PM

OPEN! Edro! Or is it in Mordor's name?
REMEMBER: Rossetti’s gentle exhortation. Or does it concern a looking-glass?
3. Uttered in Lothlorien. ‘Tis a winding path.
EA! To do this or not is the question, thought Iluvatar.
5. I wonder, perplexed, at this urgency!
SILENCE! Pinter’s, Werenowska’s or Buffini’s? Whichever! Uttered by one at the Morannon.


REMEMBER

BY CHRISTINA ROSSETTI


Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you plann'd:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.


...

A very famous sonnet, often read at funerals. I'm old enough to have been to quite a few funerals, and I've read it at at least 2.

Often incorrectly named 'Remember Me.'

Remember, remember, the draining of the well
When Feanor went insane, and all went to hell

Urwen 06-19-2019 03:51 PM

Password: Orders

No.

"Remember Galadriel and her mirror."

Hence my 'looking glass' comment.


'Orders' is correct.

D: Uttered in Lothlorien. ‘Tis a winding path.

R: I wonder, perplexed, at this urgency!
SILENCE! Pinter’s, Werenowska’s or Buffini’s? Whichever! Uttered by one at the Morannon.

Of course you are!

It would have been nice to see the looking glass bit guessed, though.

I think Feanor probably lost the plot quite a while before wells were even invented.

Urwen 06-19-2019 04:16 PM

Daro (From Road), for 3.

Oh no, I am sure that the wells Ungoliant drank from were around long before he was even born.

Ride for the last one?

Pervinca Took 06-19-2019 04:38 PM

Nearly.

I thought of using RIDE from Glorfindel's order to Frodo. But that's only in the BBC radio version. In the book, it's FLY.

Actually, is it FLY then RIDE in both versions? I think it might be.

...

Anyway, the answer is a bit more than ride, and is from LOTR, but a different part.

Urwen 06-19-2019 04:41 PM

Ride now to Gondor?

RIDE NOW = anagram of I WONDER.

Over to you!

Urwen 06-19-2019 04:47 PM

Thanks, I have an idea, but it's unfinished. Will post it as soon as I figure out what the last answer should be.

Pervinca Took 06-19-2019 04:50 PM

Cool! Look forward to it. :)

Urwen 06-20-2019 01:10 AM

Here it is
 
1. Endless French valley in a muddle, briefly surrounded by global mod? There he is!
2. Muddled defects reveal him
3. Note, stern he is.
4. To shine? It turns for him
5. Noisy, with direction? See him!
6. Related to fungus he is, after a spin.

Pervinca Took 06-20-2019 03:49 AM

3. Grim + a?

Urwen 06-20-2019 03:54 AM

Pervinca Took 06-22-2019 12:29 AM

Is the endless French valley LOIR again, and is it OLORIN?

If the 'global mod' thing is something to do with gaming, I will never get it.

Yes, it's LOIR. Try abbreviating 'global mod', surround LOIR with these letters, and what do you see?

Urwen 06-22-2019 12:36 AM

More hints
 
2. Think synonym for 'defects' and rearrange it.
4. ;)
5. Think synonym for 'noisy' and add one of six direction letters.
6. What's the other word for 'of fungus'?

Pervinca Took 06-22-2019 12:41 AM

5. ULDOR. LOUD + R.

6. Fungoid?

Is it people who are (ac)cursed?

Urwen 06-22-2019 12:43 AM

Yes, and no and no.

Try guessing the theme instead.

Urwen 06-22-2019 01:01 AM

Also, I made a mistake with highlighting.

Fixed.

Pervinca Took 06-22-2019 01:18 AM

Girion, perhaps, as I have had no success guessing the theme.
