I NEVER thought the Elves or their Song 'goofy' or 'silly'. Both came across as light hearted - yes! - but in a joyous welcoming way. The sheer delight of living in Rivendell and sauntering in the trees at twilight springs forth in their choir-like chorusing. If I were there, I'd sing like a nightingale alongside them, for the sheer joy of living - and being in Rivendell. Hells bells - why wouldn't you be merry? (NB I'd sing like a very masculine nightingale, though).
As to 'pentology' - wash your mouth out with soap. I shouldn't like to think language such as that is going to start creeping onto this forum.
