Artist's Description

In the far West end of the Shire
there is a place where Hobbits go
Tis a fun but good little hike
just past some green hills, three or so

Along the trail songs they sing
play rhyming games just for fun
they eat first lunch along the way
wanting more, second lunch is begun

They cool their feet at water’s edge
Hide and seek played amongst the trees
they cook up mushrooms that are found
that leaves a scent upon the breeze

Visions are dancing in their heads
as tales are told of long ago
keeping alive the memories
of Sam, Gandalf and brave Frodo

As they frolic, a swoosh is heard
in midst a patch of wild berries
most likely rabbits having sport
but conclude its elves or fairies

They roll on the ground laughing hard
as into the creek one does fall
but he soon climbs out, fish in hand
having last laugh on one and all

One starts to play a wooden flute
as two keep time with clapping hands
a spinning dance the rest do start
the winner is, he who still stands

Time has come to start the hike home
but wishing longer they could stay
for so much fun is had by all
while at this place where Hobbits play

dedicated to all enjoy "The Lord of the Rings

Place: The Shire in Eriador
(but strangely looks exactly like a creek in Louden, Tennessee, USA)
