Bilbo’s Adventure Song

Come, lets go a-wandering afar,

And see what may be our finds,

Where dragon’s gold and goblins are,

And jewels of many kinds.

Long may we seek such things in vain,

And disipointed, homeward turn,

But on the morrow we may try again,

To find that for which we yearn.

We will not seek the homeward way,

We will not say this is the end,

Until there fades the light of day,

For we know not what lies around the bend.

Just a little further on,

Waits a discovery to be made,

That someday We may chance upon,

In hidden glen or secret glade.

After a while when we are weary,

Of dragons, orcs, and elves,

We will return to our hearth-fires cheery,

By which to warm ourselves.

We will go on till fades the light,

And then in the evening breeze,

When creeps slowly up the fearsome night,

We shall seek a path beneath the trees.

When the firefly glows and the cricket sings,

And dreams float through our minds,

Of gold and jewels and secret things,

That tomorrow we may find.

We will not seek the homeward way,

We will not say this is the end,

Until there fades the light of day,

For we know not what lies around the bend,

We will not say this is the end.
