Pour

For those of you just tuning in, we are now working our way through common words which appear in the poems and lyrics. At the moment, we are dwarves, singing about making a mess of Bilbo’s kitchen.

• 1.065 Pour the milk on the pantry floor!
• 2.029 it was pouring with rain,
• 2.038 Then the rain began to pour down worse than ever,
• 10.006 the doubled waters poured out again
• 17.048 and poured now

That last is a reference to goblins:

17.048 …As Gandalf had hoped, the goblin army had gathered behind the resisted vanguard, and poured now in rage into the valley, driving wildly up between the arms of the Mountain, seeking for the foe. Their banners were countless, black and red, and they came on like a tide in fury and disorder.
