"A Small and Passing Thing" by Shirebound

Author: Shirebound
Title: A Small and Passing Thing
Rating: G
Theme: Riddles
Elements: Assigned prompt and answer are revealed below
Summary: Far from home, we are remembered.
Word Count: 55



Trodden by kings, and love upon wings
The sun on our faces, the stars in their places
Dreaming gently with the years
We cushioned hope, we cradled tears

Now gently leaves begin to fall
The great ones from us pass
But far to the west we are recalled
In the life of a hobbit lass














I was given "sunflower(s)" as my prompt, and the answer is... elanor.

Absolutely beautiful. I see you gave a slight twist to your prompt, but it's not fair for me to say, since I already know.

This is just wonderful, dear!

Thank you! It was your prompt that inspired this. Elanor is the ultimate sun-flower. :)

That's lovely, but I'm not good with riddles and had to look at the answer, lol!

I'm just as bad with guessing riddles! I almost always have to be told the answer.

It could! The wonderful elanor flower from Lorien after which Elanor Gamgee was named.

A nice take on Lorien and the naming of Sam's daughter!

That is truly brilliant, Janet. I'm not much good at solving riddles so I had no idea what it was. Lol, I wouldn't stand a chance in a battle of the riddles with Gollum :DD

Thank you.

I'm utterly dreadful at solving riddles, too! Gollum would have gobbled me up in five minutes.
