The problem was one entirely of my own making. There is, in fact, no
long 'ê' in line (c) - it is a hangver from an earlier version I put
forward in which I misunderstood the verb. Line (c) should be restored,
as Dennis has already pointed out, to:
dâ leanar-sa as lêir ('if I continue, it is clear,')
This gives a perfect rhyme.
