    Yes Erestor you're right .
    Helm defended the Hornburg and went out every night to kill some Dunlendings but one night he didn't returned and was found in the next morning, freezed to death

    Ok, I am beginning to like this :)

    Another one:

    " We like to feast on little folk
    so small they are, we won’t choke…

    Mmm, them is juicy, we like ‘m best
    when we wander and roam the forest...

    Over mountains beyond spiders
    we live in places unknown to others…

    We like to count our money
    also so sweet as honey!

    But… are we real or are we not, hark!
    however, when wandering, look out in the dark!"

    Who are meant here?...

    Maybe dragons because
    Little folk:dwarfs
    Money counting:treasure
    Over mountains beyond spiders:behind misty mountains and mirkwood
    Are we real:dragons seemed to the people to be just
    a story

    We won't choke: dragons are so huge

    There are others that fit the description better ... :)
    Look at Mirkwood and the Misty Mountains as alternative names ... :)

    Ah finally a difficult riddle ! :)

    The race talked about here is maybe a confusinal misrepresentation of another race, but considered, only remnant in a folktale by the little folk, as real ...

    Nope no Trolls, but you are getting closer! :)

    They are never mentioned in the LOTR, Hobbit or so..., only in a poem elsewhere... :)

    Nope no Giants either.

    Here's the end of the poem... :

    "Beyond the Merlock Mountains, a long and lonely road,
    Through the spider-shadows and the marsh of Tode,
    And through the wood of hanging trees and gallows-weed,
    You go to find the …. - and the …. feed."


    :)

    The poem in its whole is in The Adventures of Tom Bombadil :)

    My turn:
    What is the meaning of Gonnhirrim?

    I started to read the Adventures but I never finished...
    Perhaps a mistake:eek:

    The Mewlips must be Uvanimo from Udûn. Was that poem written within the legend by Tom or Hobbits?.

    Tom, to my knowledge, did not write this poem, it was an already ancient song/poem by the hobbits themself... to scare them not to go on long journeys, yet alone!

    Additional trivia: "The Mewlips" was a rewrite of an earlier of Tolkien's poems, "Knocking at the Door", which was published in The Oxford Magazine, vol. 55, no. 13 (18 February 1937).

    Another one, to this one I will give as little clues as possible... :)

    "I lived loveless, childless and austere,
    in a land not seen by me as fair…

    Ten spied for me on my husband and others,
    to report me what bothers…

    Only the ten accompanied me in exile,
    sailing far south and east to find an isle…

    We were never heard of again,
    but our legend is one to remain..."

    Who am I?

    Clue 1: @Romendacil I : he is very likely to know her, from beyond his grave ...
