That is For The Ring Bearer to Decide

- Dandy

I sat in the garden
A pipe in the night
Voices raised Frodo and another
both full of fright
Am I to be included,
that is for the Ring Bearer to decide

We flee from the house
From a rider in black
The road cannot be used
Our path has no track
Which way do we go?
That is for the Ring Bearer to decide

Travel through forest
A house on a hill
Goldberry and merry
Old Tom Bombadil
All alone on the barrows
That is for the Ring Bearer to decide

A night in an inn
A prance in the pony
A stranger, a ranger
Is he real or phony
Does he join our little party
That is for the Ring Bearer to decide

Travel through marshes
Weathertop roaming
Fire in the night
Riders are coming
Put on the ring, or choose to survive
That is for the Ring Bearer to decide

A fourteen day burden
The Bruinen River to cross
will he survive
do we suffer our first loss
Evil overwhelmed, will our friend heal
That is for the Ring Bearer to decide

Over plains we travel
Cold winter days are fine
Over mountains tall passes
Or under through the mine
Do we tread the empty and silent halls
That is for the Ring Bearer to decide

A quiet trek through the dark
Footsteps follow, the slapping of feet
Do we go forward, which way to turn
A stone in the well, a hammers beat
Loss of a friend, can he bear the pain
That is for the Ring Bearer to decide

A month in the magic woods
Lothlorien, quietly healing
A look in the mirror
The sense are reeling
Give up the ring, the quest ends here
That is for the Ring Bearer to decide

Down the Anduin river
We postpone then our rest
In the three elven boats
The party begs to go west
Our true course is eastward
No choice remains for the Ring Bearer to decide
