Rhymes of Lore:
The Rhymes of Lore were a way of remembering old
facts. The only one recorded was (LOTR.620):
Tall Ships and tall Kings
Three times three,
What brought they from the foundered Land
Over the flowing sea?
Seven stars and seven stones
And one white tree.
Pippin said that Hobbits have their own rhymes of
lore, so it is likely that each people or culture had
their own set.
