"Ah! The Ring!" said Boromir, his eyes lighting. "The Ring! Is it not a strange fate that we should suffer so much fear and doubt over so small a thing? So small a thing!"

I sang of leaves, of leaves of gold, and leaves of gold there grew; of wind there came and in the branches blew.

The love of the Elves for their land and their works is deeper than the deeps of the Sea, and their regret is undying and cannot ever wholly be assuaged.

He rose clumsily and bowed in dwarf-fashion, saying: ‘Yet more is fair is the living land of Lórien, and the Lady Galadriel is above all the jewels that lie beneath the earth!’

The finest rockets ever seen:
they burst in stars of blue and green,
or after thunder golden showers
come falling like a rain of flowers.

“My dear Bagginses and Boffins,” he began again; “and my dear Tooks and Brandybucks, and Grubbs, and Chubbs, Burrowses, and Hornblowers, and Bolgers, Bracegirdles, Goodbodies, Brockhouses and Proudfoots.” “Proudfeet!” shouted an elderly hobbit from the back of the pavilion.

The Mathom-house it was called; for anything that Hobbits had no immediate use for, but were unwilling to throw away, they called a mathom.

At that moment there was a knock at the door, and Sam came in. He ran to Frodo and took his left hand, awkwardly and shyly. He stroked it gently and then he blushed and turned hastily away.

“So you heard that Mr. Frodo is going away?” “I did, sir. And that’s why I choked: which you heard seemingly. I tried not to, sir, but it burst out of me: I was so upset.”

He bitterly regretted his foolishness and reproached himself for weakness of will; for he know perceived that in putting on the Ring he obeyed not his own desire, but the commanding wish of his enemies. He wondered if he would be maimed for life, and how they would now manage to continue their journey. He felt too weak to stand.
