A Walking Song

"Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate,
And though we pass them by today,
Tomorrow we may come this way
And take the hidden paths that run
Towards the Moon or to the Sun."

--sung by Frodo, Sam, and Pippin as they set off for Buckland in Tolkien's Lord of the Rings


  1. One of my favorites, followed closely by the bath-song:

    "O! Water is fair that leaps on high
    In a fountain white beneath the sky;
    but never did fountain sound so sweet
    as splashing Hot Water with my feet!"
