No. I was busy all day.

Stay tuned next week for Tom Bombadil!

Unlikely. I actually don't care much for Bombadil's song.

I really like that poem; almost enough to make me attempt to tackle the books. :)

There is some mention of the Entwives in The Two Towers movie (I found the subtitles for it):

--Why are there so few of you when you have lived so long? Are there Ent children?
--There have been no Entings for a terrible long count of years.
- Why is that?
--We lost the Entwives.
--Oh, I'm sorry. How did they die?
--Die? No. We lost them. And now we cannot find them. I don't suppose you've seen Entwives in the Shire?
--Can't say that I have. You, Pip?
--What do they look like?
--I don't remember now.

Not nearly so poignant as the poem, but still sad.

Oh man. You should read the account in the book. That dialog is like paraphrasing Hamlet's "To be or not to be" as "Sometimes I think it would be better just to end it all, but then again I think maybe not." I know I have to make allowances for it being a movie, but they could just as well have left it out.
