Waiting for the Hobbit to begin.

I know that had fate not intervened.
You would be here enjoying this with me.
Standing in line with your family and friends.
Waiting for the Hobbit to begin.

I bet you got an eagle eye view.
Watched them create magic.
Did you walk around New Zealand,
Traveling the path of the Fellowship?

Did you stand in that theater,
Laughing along with us?
Enjoying the adventure,
As if you never left us.

And when I finally see you.
And I wrap you  in a hug.
Will you laugh and tell me,
Who was your favorite Dwarf?

Written after the midnight premier of The Hobbit were I ran into my best friends family. I know if she were still here she would have been there too.

And so I said to him, "Dumbledore beats Gandalf any day."

Tis the biggest adventure a hobbit needs

I am told that Bilbo, before his
Adventures began, would walk, the
Shire to seek the queen of the fungi.
To search was the compulsion.
Driven by taste, for the mysterious
Fruit of the forest floor.
When asked, he would say,
To savour the wild delight has nothing to compare,
To the humble taste of a spud, or sprout,
Just an ecstasy of unparalleled delight.
Knowing you have found the woody nutty treasure.
Of the queen of the forest floor.
Tis the biggest adventure a hobbit needs
To test his might against the mighty mushroom.

But then he had yet to meet ...
A wizard and a dwarf.

One little hobbit,

The voice of silk,
The eye of the devil,
Breather of fire,
Killer of many.

Smaug the dragon,
Sitting in his gold,
The figure of fear,
In the legends of old.

One little hobbit,
All alone,
Confronts the dragon,
The king on his throne.

So guess which film I watched today, also Puff the Magic Dragon is stuck in my head
