A Thrush's Tale
by Onóno Laivindur
Now-a-days, not much is known of the
birds in Middle-Earth, but a scroll was recently found and is being
translated from Dwarvish into the Common tongue.
I shall post messages here as they
become available. It appears this is the birds-eye view of Bilbo’s
adventures as seen by the old Thrush and told to Radagast the Brown
A Thrush’s Tale: Flying there and back again.
Tweet: The last I saw of Bilbo Baggins he was traveling with dwarves
all tongues a waggin.and a tall Wizard with a pointy hat up on ponies
they all sat. Tweet: They were all talking at once about jools and a
bargain, the distance to a mountain and the quickest way there and back
again. I don't expect we will see them again and mores the pity, since
I was just cozying up to him. Oh well, we shall see, we shall see. A
most un-natural hobbit. Adventures make you late for supper.
Tweet! They made their way to the mountain pass; A terrible storm blew
in: Bilbo says don't worry though, they found a nice dry cave to stay
in. Tweet! and Trolls are no trouble it seems; should you invite them
to stay for breakfast tea. Tweet!
Tweet: the cave gave way: I did not see them for a day. On the
mountain-side they did bound, but no Bilbo to be found. Beater and
Biter slew a host, nasty goblins screamed the most, the Wizard saved
our traveling band after Thorin made a stubborn stand. So I heard part
of the tale and was sent to share this by regale, now I must, in haste,
fly back to find our friends or lose their track Tweet!
