TIME - September 26 [In reply to] Can't Post

Today in Middle-earth.

September 26, 3018 (S.R. 1418)
1. The Old Forest.
(from the appendices)
..."It was dark and damp. At the far end it was closed by a gate of thick-set iron bars. Merry got down and unlocked the gate, and when they had all passed through he pushed it to again. It shut with a clang, and the lock clicked. The sound was ominous.
...'There!' said Merry. 'You have left the Shire, and am now outside, and on the edge of the Old Forest.'"

..."...Sam sat down and scratched his head, and yawned like a cavern. He was worried. The afternoon was getting late, and he thought his sudden sleepiness uncanny. 'There's more behind this than sun and warm air,' he muttered to himself. 'I don't like this great big tree. I don't trust it. Hark at it singing about sleep now! This won't do at all...!'
......he heard two noises; one loud, and the other soft but very clear. One was the splash of something heavy falling into the water; the other was a noise like the snick of a lock when a door quietly closes fast.
...He rushed back to the bank. Frodo was in the water close to the edge, and a great tree-root seemed to be over him and holding him down, but he was not struggling. Sam gripped him by the jacket, and dragged him from under the root; and then with difficulty hauled him on to the bank. Almost at once he woke, and coughed and spluttered.
...'Do you know, Sam... ...the beastly tree threw me in...!'
...They went round to the other side of the tree, and then Sam understood the click that he had heard. Pippin had vanished. The crack, by which he had laid himself, had closed together, so that not a chink could be seen. Merry was trapped: another crack had closed about his waist; his legs lay outside, but the rest of him was inside a dark opening, the edges of which gripped like a pair of pincers.
...Frodo and Sam beat first upon the tree-trunk where Pippin had lain. They then struggled frantically to pull open the jaws of the crack that held poor Merry. It was quite useless.
...'What a foul thing to happen!' cried Frodo wildly. 'Why did we ever come into this dreadful Forest?'"

2. Frodo comes to Bombadil.
(from the appendices)
..."[Frodo] ran along the path crying help! help! help...
......Suddenly he stopped. There was an answer, or so he thought; but it seemed to come from behind him, away down the path further back in the Forest. He turned round and listened, and soon there could be no doubt: someone was singing a song; a deep glad voice was singing carelessly and happily, but it was singing nonsense:

Hey dol! merry dol! ring a dong dillo!

Ring a dong! hop along! fal lal the willow!

Tom Bom, jolly Tom, Tom Bombadillo!

...Half hopeful and half afraid of some new danger, Frodo and Sam now both stood still. Suddenly out of a long string of nonsense-words (or so they seemed) the voice rose up loud and clear and burst into this song...
......Frodo and Sam stood as if enchanted... ...suddenly, hopping and dancing along the path, there appeared above the reeds an old battered hat with a tall crown and a long blue feather stuck in the band. With another hop and a bound there came into view a man, or so it seemed... ...stumping along with great yellow boots on his thick legs, and charging through grass and rushes like a cow going down to drink....
...'...Help!' cried Frodo and Sam running towards him with their hand stretched out.

...'Whoa! Whoa! Steady there!' cried the old man, holding up one hand, and they stopped short, as if they had been struck stiff. 'Now, my little fellows, where be you a-going to, puffing like bellows? What's the matter here then? Do you know who I am? I'm Tom Bombadil....'"

September 26, 3019 (S.R. 1419)
1. They rest in Rivendell
(not from the appendices)
..."...The four hobbits stayed in Rivendell for some days, and they sat much with their old friend, who spent most of his time now in his room, except at meals. For these he was still very punctual as a rule, and he seldom failed to wake up in time for them."

September 26, 3021 (S.R. 1421)
1. The Company rides to the Grey Havens.
(not from the appendices-no text)
...Dread lay on Sam's heart. Despite the enchanting songs of the Elven-company as they made their way, the endless miles weighed heavier on him with each step. Yet when Sam would anxiously look over at Frodo riding beside him, he couldn't deny a peace on his friend's face that he hadn't seen since their return.

September 26, 1921 - Happy 92nd Birthday, Mom! :)
