What did the Entwives look like?
Treebeard says something about how he doesn’t remember exactly (it has been a long time)

Of course it reminds you of Hiawatha; Longfellow deliberately chose that meter for Hiawatha because he felt that it was a suitable one for the subject.
Anyone ever read Lewis Carroll's parody of "Hiawatha"?
