another Tolkien Tribute: The Courting of Goldberry

The Courting of Goldberry

Among the reeds
I see you!
Part of the River,
part of the land…
I hear your laughter
and your singing…
I offer you my strong brown hand:
Come with me.
fair Lady springing
from the heart of the River–
Come live on the land!
Come sing with me,
and with me dance–
Oh, sweet fair Lady,
take the chance!
Oh, Lady, come,
I’m a lovely fellow
in my happy blue hat
and my boots of yellow–
I’m just the lad
for the River Daughter–
to live with you
forever after
sharing your songs
and your perfect laughter!
