I suppose any good Tolkienist should be interested in riddles. So here’s a little one for this week. (The answer is posted in a comment below.)

What swirls down hills
And into holes,
But will not fill
Our empty bowls?

    The rhyme above is, of course, a reworking of “A hill full, a hole full, ye cannot carry a bowlful”–a traditional English riddle that also happens to be a fine specimen of metrical poetry and brevity.
