'Tis not true [In reply to] Can't Post

I love the Primrose path, i do Wink

Aunt Dora Baggins, you rascal, you have me down to a TEE. 'cept i am no es-kee-mo!. BUT i have information that in days of yore, i hear tell that Uncle Baggins took this shot of you.. And in turn you took one of him exclaiming,What a pane! having lost his beard in the processWink

But there were 'situations' for my part, putting docks in and out, and cold swims, training early in the season ( thank Eru for wetsuits).

I have three poems. Two of them, (written by triathletes) and from what was related above, sets the third up to a TEE, for all of us i will add i am sure, especially for those the perambulate the alpine trails LaughWink

Tri-mantra (to be hissed or groaned at any unfriendly hill)
In my world,
The water is cold,
The wind is hard,
And the road never ends.

In my world,
There are no losers.
Only competitors
still on their way,
And spectators
waiting to be inspired.

In my world,
Victory is not weighed in gold,
But in determination and courage.

In my world,
There are no boundaries,
No limits,
There is no end.
Every day is the last day of my life,
And the first.

In my world,
The word "can't" does not exist,
And nothing is impossible.

The Song of the Ungirt Runners

We swing ungirded hips,
And lightened are our eyes,
The rain is on our lips,
We do not run for prize.
We know not whom we trust
Nor whitherward we fare,
But we run because we must
Through the great wide air.

The waters of the seas
Are troubled as by storm.
The tempest strips the trees
And does not leave them warm.
Does the tearing tempest pause?
Do the tree-tops ask it why?
So we run without a cause
'Neath the big bare sky.

The rain is on our lips,
We do not run for prize.
But the storm the water whips
And the wave howls to the skies.
The winds arise and strike it
And scatter it like sand,
And we run because we like it
Through the broad bright land.

Charles Hamilton Sorley

Bath-Song by J R R Tolkien

Sing hey! For the bath at close of day
that washes the weary mud away
A loon is he that will not sing
O! Water Hot is a noble thing!

O! Sweet is the sound of falling rain,
and the brook that leaps from hill to plain;
but better than rain or rippling streams
is Water Hot that smokes and steams.

O! Water cold we may pour at need
down a thirsty throat and be glad indeed
but better is beer if drink we lack,
and Water Hot poured down the back.

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!
