Subject: RE: Nursery Rhyme - The Dish Ran Away With the Spo
Tolkien created a longer, larger and "older" version which appeared in The Lord of the Rings (when Frodo and the hobbits are entertaining people at the inn at Bree while Aragorn watches balefully from the shadows) and elsewhere, and "Only a few words of it are now, as a rule, remembered."
