The Hobbit in his secret hole,
The Fortune of the Ring unfold.
The story of adventure told.
~ Eyes searching the horizon
Clinching teeth, nibbling old rations,
Temporarily frozen passions
Flowing beneath leaden brows
Incredible sacrifice he knows. ~
Around his neck
The Destiny of Middle Earth he holds.
~ But thanks to the unsung henchman
(the friend to the end), and a certain guide;
Immortal peril and deep, dark evil on an epic scale
He Bolds. ~
