It was cold outside and the wind blew hard
on the day Peregrin Took was born.
The hobbits stayed inside near the hearth
and listened to the raging storm.
He was a very small baby hobbit boy
with big, mischievous eyes.
He looked upon the darkened world with joy
and uttered not a cry.
They say that babies still that young,
do not know how to smile.
But little Pippin Took in his mother’s arms
did so for awhile.
