A Walking Song

Upon the hearth the fire is red,

Beneath the roof there is a bed;
But not yet weary are our feet,
Still round the corner we may meet
A sudden tree or standing stone
That none have seen but we alone.
     Tree and flower and leaf and grass,
     Let them pass! Let them pass!
     Hill and water under sky,
     Pass them by! Pass them by!


Taken from The Lord of the Rings, when the hobbits Frodo, Pippin and Sam are making their way to Crickhollow.
