A Little Something ...
“I sit beside the fire and think 
Of all that I have seen
Of meadow flowers and butterflies
In summers that have been;
Of yellow leaves and gossamer
In autumns that there were,
With morning mist and silver sun
And wind upon my hair.
I sit beside the fire and think
Of how the world will be
When winter comes without a spring 
That I shall ever see.
For still there are so many things
That I have never seen:
In every wood in every spring
There is a different green.
I sit beside the fire and think
Of people long ago
And people that will see a world
That I shall never know.
But all the while I sit and think
Of times there were before,
I listen for returning feet 
And voices at the door.” 

Sung by the aging hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, in Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
