A Short Trip – Sam’s thoughts

by Apr 25, 2003Poetry

I thought-I hoped my master could stay
Can’t Mr. Frodo stay in the Shire that he’s saved?
But now he tells me that he must go away
He must be healed from the perils he braved.

His Black Rider’s wound is killing him slowly
Can’t Mr. Frodo stay in the Shire that he’s saved?
Only in Valinor can he be healed fully.
He must be healed from the perils he braved.

Rosie’s waiting for in Bag End with Elanor
Can’t Mr. Frodo stay in the Shire that he’s saved?
But I can’t sit and watch him suffer any more
He must be healed from all the perils that he braved.

Though I know he hates to leave all us hobbits
Can’t Mr. Frodo stay in the Shire that he’s saved?
He must leave-it just hurts that healing’s all he gets.
He must be healed from all the perils he braved.

Here is a group of Fair Folk-Elves from far away
Can’t Mr. Frodo stay in the Shire that he’s saved?
With tears “I love you, Master”, is all that I can say.
He must be healed from all the perils that he braved.

Merry and Pippin are here to bid farewell
Mr. Frodo’s leaving the Shire that he’s saved.
And what a story I’ll have to tell
As he’s healed of all the perils that he braved.
