So now we seen the inspiration for Sam's poem! :) What a horrible sight when he sees them for real.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: Oh, yes, we see what inspired the poem, followed by his first true sight of the dreadful things! Glad I wasn't there to see it with my own eyes--the eyes of the imagination are bad enough!

Thanks so, Antane.

“I swear, them’s worse than I ever thought from old Mr. Bilbo’s stories.”

That they are indeed!

But the occasion on which Sam came up with his poem was very funny. Ted Sandyman - who else ;-)

Author Reply: It was fun trying to think what might have inspired the poem to begin with; and who better to inspire the image of Tom "lasting lame" than seeing old Sandyman hopping around, nursing his foot, while Ted flees and the stone sits there, perhaps wondering what all the hollering is about? Heh!

And the real thing is indeed worse than the imagined monster!

Thanks so, Andrea.
