Gandalf's Riddle of the Ents
Type: Songs & Stories
Description:'It is not wizardry, but a power far older,' said Gandalf: 'a power that walked the earth, ere elf sang or hammer rang.
Ere iron was found or tree was hewn,TTT, Book III, Ch 8, 'The Road to Isengard'
When young was mountain under moon;
Ere ring was made, or wrought was woe,
It walked the forests long ago.'
