Autumn's Melancholy





Green to yellow orange to red
Summers leaves, tomorrow dead

Blossoms flowered now branches bare
An autumn breeze cools the air

Green Shire hills, blue smoky haze
carries low in post summer days

Waistcoat, hat, scarf and breeches thicker
Warming hair on my feet grows quicker

An aching heart for simpler days wont stop
Eternal pain remains since Weathertop

On mornings tide dear friends, Sam, Merry ‘n Pip
Bilbo, Gandalf and I sail west on Cirdan’s ship
