We understand the symetrical dimensions of your women, what does that have to do with the subject on hand ?

But as a consolation prize you must let me post one!

I have one, you have one. If you remove the first letter, a bit remains. If you remove the second, bit still remains. After much trying, you might be able to remove the third one also, but it remains. What am I? :wink:

I am a scholar of great fame,
I dwell by a white tree,
Without me none could write their own name,
Now think deeply, who might I be?
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

I'd have to guess Rúmil, but I'm not sure about the tree.

You are correct. The tree refers to Galathilion, the original likeness of Telperion, which stood in Tirion, the dwelling of Rumil.

I live in the hills far away,
I'm the last from Weathertop to the sea,
If ever I go out wandering,
All scream and run in terror from me,
I dwell alone very sadly,
I am indeed a monstrous beast,
But if ever you dare to approach me,
You will be met with a feast!
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

It almost sounds like the Midgewood Marshes, but I feel like I am missing something obvious. :?

i haven't been keeping up with this so let me know if this is a repeat
May there always be a path, for I am swift on my feet.
Maidens watch me from afar, Knights envy my strength.
Restrained by the ways of men, they bind me to them;
Nay, I do not trouble, I am strong, but can easily be led.
Luck be with you, if you happen to find my shoe.
