The House Of Tom Bombadil. Have wonderful Friday's one and all, back to painting for me, later................



The House Of Tom Bombadil.
 
After many a Hey dol! merry dol! ring a dong dillo! Ring a dong! hop along! fal lal the willow; Tom stands beside his illuminated house and raises his hat to the four weary Hobbits.  
 
On the far bank, Fatty Lumpkin, Tom's faithful pony looks on with great amusement wondering what folly Tom has brought to his door this evening.
 
Inspired by J.R.R Tolkien's The Lord Of The Rings
 
Down again the path went, and then up again, up a long smooth hillside of turf, towards the light. Suddenly a wide yellow beam flowed out brightly from a door that was opened. There was Tom Bombadil's house before them, up, down, under hill. Behind it a steep shoulder of the land lay grey and bare, and beyond that the dark shapes of the Barrow-downs stalked away into the eastern night.
