A WARM FIRE



Zitat
When the road gets tough and dim,
Despair not and send away any thought grim,
Find your very strength anew,
As braveness in the old days that flew,
Though nothing grows tired in this our Shire,
In front of tasty beer and a kind warm fire,
Whose embers might perhaps comfort the doubtful,
After fine delicacies and a sufficient mouthful.
Che solo amore e luce ha per confine

SORRY



Zitat
Tell me, why should you be sorry?
You've come to this our green home, clear from angst and worry,
Afar, there dwell strange folks, cursing both the cold high and the torrid low,
Lands not apt for the birth of good, to build warm houses and sow,
Wanderer, may you find peace among this buoyant lot,
Not very interested are we in the 'where' or 'what',
Rest well behind this meagre wooden fence,
We would your memory were fond, once you will have parted hence.
Che solo amore e luce ha per confine

GOOD VENISON



Zitat
There, look what the kind Hobbit has made,
Firm hand and swift blade,
Just to cook and please one's wish,
Most delicious and tasty dish.

Woods were generous, indeed!
Let the fine odour you lead,
Good venison is served, from deer that ever run free and roam,
May we cherish such finery and bless this home.
Che solo amore e luce ha per confine

SONGS FOR JOY



Zitat
Please, pardon, sing for me joy,
That's what is yearned, by every girl and boy,
Doesn't it suffice, fatigue and much strain?
The Hobbit has laboured restless, drained by the heat of noon in the main.

Please, sing of peace and silly evenings,
When all rejoice at the warmth of the tavern, faithful friends and siblings,
Aye, a good story to jest about,
Nothing else but a merry night, without demise or sad rout.
Che solo amore e luce ha per confine

THAT QUEER INDOMITABLE BLUE



Zitat
That queer indomitable blue,
Lying far, far away from here,
Many leagues off, which beheld so few,
Often does the good little Hobbit cower in fear.

And him we blame not,
All who gaze at the vast waters under a spell fall,
As the traveller landing on the isle he had long sought,
In such uncanny prodigy we're held in thrall.

Akin to the immortal,
Though the good Half-man then comes back home,
Ever doubt we the unknown and startle,
Dreading loud waves and furious foam.
Che solo amore e luce ha per confine

MORE IS THERE



Zitat
Truly, more is there to meet the eye,
Concerning Hobbits, by many deemed reclusive and shy,
A shy people we are not,
Not those who concede ere our chance was fairly fought.

Unless some strangers bring tidings of good,
Unless one be pleased by the Halflings' company and their food,
So eager to disclose us we shall never be,
That you may rightly guess and clearly see.

SPIRITED SONG



Zitat
Songs, songs, of them we have not enough,
Aye, you shall fain cheer the moment and laugh,
Laugh loudly, forgetting hardships and anything tough,
Herein just joy, without hurrying rough.

Songs, happy ones which I adore,
Deeply, either telling tales or lore.

Songs, songs, I shall stick to this way,
No strange singer am I, no minstrel fey,
But a mere jester, willing to sell merry thoughts and adventurous lay,
This long I to do, when I may.

THAT OLD WOOD



Zitat
That old wood,
Leaving home? So unsettling a mood!
A green route, a solitary road,
Leading out of the Shire, abroad.

Lone passage, solely trodden by resolute foot,
Those of higher kind, of a deeply-grown root.

Passing the thicket and ancient trees,
There runs wild the hare, as off nuts the clement bird feeds,
Pilgrims go this way and never return,
Only chants are heard, ere the sun is anew born.
Che solo amore e luce ha per confine

MERRY NIGHT



Zitat
Merry night, merry night,
Moment for rest, leaving aside fight,
During the banquet we meet and tell fine stories of yore,
Until mind is made weak by liquor and the throat sore.

THE CONTRACT



Zitat
Bilbo, Bilbo, we hope you're well and sound,
Your warm dwelling empty have we found,
Was the enterprise worth, were so all the battles you shall have fought?
Surely have you signed a contract of hazard, which tons of worries has indeed wrought.

IT WERE ILL, IT WOULD FILL



Zitat
It were ill to disdain the good lunch,
It were ill to nay-say and forget to crunch,
Tasty bread and salty meat,
It would fill thy belly and so be it.

If folks be keen on dining,
Forswear the wary thought and cease the whining,
Thinkest thou not it were verily good?
It won't bode well to refuse food.

Come to the finely jolly Shire,
As lonesome wanderer or grand sire.
Che solo amore e luce ha per confine

DINNER



Zitat
Never be late for dinner,
That is wrong-doing, of a real sinner,
Here in the Shire cherish we the fine old meal,
Which evenly refreshes the tired and ill.

THAT STUBBORN DWARF



Zitat
That stubborn dwarf, hard as a rock,
As the marble he's used to moulding, labouring amok,
Great faces he mocks in the stone,
Ceasing work when the gleeful robin away has flown.

Gentle and noble dwarf,
Undaunted, never serf,
What if he might cross the very same Hobbit's way?
Unlikely, for much need he guard his wealth and shape clay.

FAIRY-LIKE ELF



Zitat
Fairy-like Elf, prince of the tale,
So desirous to leave, longing to sail,
Away from this earth,
Whence departing seems verily worth.

SILVER TO NEED



Zitat
Ere you cease your telling,
There's something you need know about this dwelling,
Respectable land of the Half-man,
Listen quiet, then.

Often is the stranger deemed nice,
Except for a wee vice,
To take the labour of ours for granted,
Denying the silver we justly wanted.
Che solo amore e luce ha per confine
