    Maybe this is an explanation:

    Vaiya or vaia (from earlier waiya, waia) means "fold, envelope".[4] It derives from the root WAY- 'enfold'.[5]

    In the earlier Book of Lost Tales, the early Qenya forms Vai and Vatya are derived from the root vaya- "enfold".[4] From that root are derived the Gnomishforms Bai and Baithon "the outer airs".[6]

    Before the writing of the Lord of the Rings, Waiya > Vaiya was the name of the Tengwa that would appear as Vala in Appendix E.[7]

    Curiously enough, the word "Valla" means "fence/hurdle" in Castilian.

    A hill green and yellow
    For a good brave fellow

    Fighting against his foe
    He fell down with him low

    There both of them were killed
    One's funeral was fulfilled

    In a hill green and yellow

    Where and who is it?:)

    I agree! :)

    It was at that time that a balrog and a contingent of orcs ambushed their company. Glorfindel there accomplished his greatest deed, for he saved the lives of Tuor, Idril, and all the company when he defied the balrog. They fought long. According to The Fall of Gondolin Glorfindel stabbed it in the belly, but as the balrog fell it reached out and grabbed his long golden hair, pulling him back down over the edge of the cliff. He perished in the fall, but his body was borne up by Thorondor, and buried him with a mound of stones in the pass. On that mound grew yellow flowers (possibly celandine), despite its remote location.

    A new one :)

    "I was the last, numer seven, guarding,
    six to begin with, they were learning…

    I saw Gold and Silver to my back,
    precious metals I lack…

    After me there it lay,
    but for eternity it was not to stay…

    Some suggest the betrayer was my maker sore,
    ah, never mind, it does not matter any more…"


    What am I ?
