Leaving The Shire (Sam Gamgee). In his weather worn traveling cloak, back pack and cooking pot laid to one side, Sam with his round eyes wide gazes eastward across lands never seen before.
The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.
