Trying something different :)

I do not know, but one can imagine that your Troll prey to prey on others, or the remnants of the old spoils at some confidentiality in the mountains found

(Semi unrelated but Alatar, did I ever tell you I bought the Irish version of The Hobbit? That would be fun to pull random quotes out of!)

I would guess that it is Elrond talking about Orcrist and Glamdring (and Sting): "I could not say," said Elrond, "but one may guess that your trolls had plundered other plunderers, or come on the remnants of old robberies in some hold in the mountains of the North."

But that isn't a "verse" so maybe not.

Thats the one. I was saying yes to the bit about trolls, not specifically that it was a verse.

So, I was on the wrong track, anyway! Your comment was confusing, Al.

Staying with that theme, here's the new one:

Troll muttering bare old bones sitting on stone seat

Don't even need to look this one up :)

Troll sat alone on his seat of stone
and he munched and mumbled a bare old bone
for many a year he had gnawed it near, for meat was hard to come by

(I think? working from memory)

I knew that, but I just wanted to finish the verse (without the repetition at the end)

But he, their master, still wins, and he saves you from this vision. His name is Mercury, the provider of freedom, ruler of all, and he must be stronger than you.

“Master” refers to Sauron?
Or Melkor?
