Have You Seen It?

Been with me since birth

Always there when I needed it

Surely helped to enjoy many a meal

Wrote all my letters of hopes and dreams with it

Was definitely with me at the start of the great adventure

Waved goodbye and hullo to many friends with it

The finery at Elrond’s tables were enjoyed with it

And the bite of Sting would have been less without it

The braided elf-wrought ropes were held fast with it

And oh how I needed it to grip the weary weight about my shoulders

Climbing up and down the dark lands, can’t imagine that without it

Bit it off he did, that treacherous wretch

A small loss to save the world

Frodo, of the Nine Fingers
