Tom Bombadil is such an enigma. Tolkien Poetry books Publications by title. Tom Bombadil is an enigma! I miss middle earth avdnturas much!! I like this sense bombaril mystery. Only the first two poems refer to Bombadil, the others being general verses from Middle-Earth, and a couple of them are familiar from The Lord of the Rings.
Tales from the Perilous Realm. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. You'd forgotten Barrow-wight dwelling in the old mound up there on hill-top with the ring of stones round.
He's got loose again. Under earth he'll take you. Poor Tom Bombadil, pale and cold he'll make you!
Shut the door, and never come back after! Take away gleaming eyes, take your hollow laughter! Go back to grassy mound, on your stony pillow lay down your bony head, like Old Man Willow, like young Goldberry, and Badger-folk in burrow!
Go back to buried gold and forgotten sorrow! Old Tom Bombadil lay upon his pillow sweeter than Goldberry, quieter than the Willow, snugger than the Badger-folk or the Barrow-dwellers; slept like a humming-top, snored like a bellows. He woke in morning-light, whistled like a starling, sang, 'Come, derry-dol, merry-dol, my darling! Wise old Bombadil, he was a wary fellow; bright blue his jacket was, and his boots were yellow.
None ever caught old Tom in upland or in dingle, walking the forest-paths, or by the Withywindle, or out on the lily-pools in boat upon the water. But one day Tom, he went and caught the River-daughter, in green gown, flowing hair, sitting in the rushes, singing old water-songs to birds upon the bushes. He caught her, held her fast! Water-rats went scuttering reeds hissed, herons cried, and her heart was fluttering. Said Tom Bombadil: 'Here's my pretty maiden!
You shall come home with me! The table is all laden: yellow cream, honeycomb, white bread and butter; roses at the window-sill and peeping round the shutter.
You shall come under Hill! Never mind your mother in her deep weedy pool: there you'll find no lover! He sang like a starling, hummed like a honey-bee, lilted to the fiddle, clasping his river-maid round her slender middle.
Lamps gleamed within his house, and white was the bedding; in the bright honey-moon Badger-folk came treading, danced down under Hill, and Old Man Willow tapped, tapped at window-pane, as they slept on the pillow, on the bank in the reeds River-woman sighing heard old Barrow-wight in his mound crying.
Old Tom Bombadil heeded not the voices, taps, knocks, dancing feet, all the nightly noises; slept till the sun arose, then sang like a starling: 'Hey! Come derry-dol, merry-dol, my darling! Why wait till morrow-year? I'll take it when me pleases. This day I'll mend my boat and journey as it chances west down the withy-stream, following my fancies! I heed you. I've a guess, I've a guess where your fancies lead you. Shall I go, shall I go, bring him word to meet you?
If you tell Willow-man where I've gone, I'll burn you, roast you on a willow-spit. That'll end your prying! No names are needed. I'll perch on his hither ear: the message will be heeded.
That's the time for drinking!
I might go by other ways, but today I'll row there. Tom Bombadil! Whither be you going, bobbing in a cockle-boat, down the river rowing?
Little folk I know there, kind at the day's end. Now and then I go there'. Tell me of diving pools and the fishes' hidings! Cocky Tom! Mind your tub don't founder! Look out for willow-snags! I'd laugh to see you flounder'. Keep your kindly wishes! Fly off and preen yourself with the bones of fishes! Gay lord on your bough, at home a dirty varlet living in a sloven house, though your breast be scarlet.
I've heard of fisher-birds beak in air a-dangling to show how the wind is set: that's an end of angling!
He stuck it in his tall hat, the old feather casting: 'Blue now for Tom', he said, "a merry hue and lasting! Tom slapped his oar, smack!
Turned water-boatman, eh? What if I upset you? Why, Whisker-lad, I'd ride you down the river. My fingers on your back would set your hide a-shiver. I'll go and tell my mother; "Call all our kin to come, father, sister, brother! Tom's gone mad as a coot with wooden legs: he's paddling down Withywindle stream, an old tub a-straddling!
They'll taw you! Then smother you in gold-rings! Your mother if she saw you, she'd never know her son, unless 'twas by a whisker. Nay, don't tease old Tom, until you be far brisker! Old Swan of Elvet-isle sailed past him proudly, gave Tom a black look, snorted at him loudly.
Tom laughed: 'You old cob, do you miss your feather? Give me a new one then! The old was worn by weather. Could you speak a fair word, I would love you dearer: long neck and dumb throat, but still a haughty sneerer! If one day the King returns, in upping he may take you, brand your yellow bill, and less lordly make you!
Tom came to Withy-weir. Down the river rushing foamed into Windle-reach, a-bubbling and a-splashing; bore Tom over stone spinning like a windfall, bobbing like a bottle-cork, to the hythe at Grindwall. Here's Woodman Tom with his bill? Don't ye make so merry! I've seen hobbit-folk digging holes to hide 'em, frightened if a horny goat or a badger eyed 'em, afeared of the moony-beams, their own shadows shunning.
I'll call the orks on you: that'll send you running! And you can talk your beard off. Three arrows in your hat! You we're not afeared of! Where would you go to now? If for beer you're making, the barrels aint deep enough in Breredon for your slaking! I'd bless little folk that took me in their wherry, wish them evenings fair and many mornings merry'.
Red flowed the Brandywine: with flame the river kindled. Mithe Steps empty stood. None was there to greet him. Silent the Causeway lay. Said Tom: 'A merry meeting! Rushey lamps gleamed ahead. He heard a voice him hailing. Tom went plodding past. What's your business here? Hat all stuck with arrows! Someone's warned you off, caught you at your sneaking?
Come here! Tell me now what it is you're seeking! I'll be bound, though you've not a penny. I'll bid them lock their doors, and then you won't get any'' 'Well, well. From one that's late for meeting away back by the Mithe that's a surly greeting!
You old farmer fat that cannot walk for wheezing, cart-drawn like a sack, ought to be more pleasing. Penny-wise tub-on-legs! A beggar can't be chooser, or else I'd bid you go, and you would be the loser. Come, Maggot! Help me up! A tankard now you owe me. Even in cockshut light an old friend should know me! They turned down Maggot's Lane, rattling and bumping, Tom in the farmer's cart dancing round and jumping.
Stars shone on Bamfurlong, and Maggot's house was lighted; fire in the kitchen burned to welcome the benighted. Maggot's sons bowed at door, his daughters did their curtsy, his wife brought tankards out for those that might be thirsty.
Songs they had and merry tales the supping and the dancing; Goodman Maggot there for all his belt was prancing, Tom did a hornpipe when he was not quaffing, daughters did the Springle-ring, goodwife did the laughing. When others went to bed in hay, fern, or feather, close in the inglenook they laid their heads together, old Tom and Muddy-feet, swapping all the tidings from Barrow-downs to Tower Hills: of walkings and of ridings; of wheat-ear and barley-corn, of sowing and of reaping; queer tales from Bree, and talk at smithy, mill, and cheaping; rumours in whispering trees, south-wind in the larches, tall Watchers by the Ford, Shadows on the marches.
Old Maggot slept at last in chair beside the embers. Ere dawn Tom was gone: as dreams one half remembers, some merry, some sad, and some of hidden warning. None heard the door unlocked; a shower of rain at morning his footprints washed away, at Mithe he left no traces, at Hays-end they heard no song nor sound of heavy paces.
Three days his boat lay by the hythe at Grindwall, and then one mom was gone back up Withywindle. Otter-folk, hobbits said, came by night and loosed her, dragged her over weir, and up stream they pushed her. Out from Elvet-isle Old Swan came sailing, in beak took her painter up in the water trailing, drew her proudly on; otters swam beside her round old Willow-man's crooked roots to guide her; the King's fisher perched on bow, on thwart the wren was singing, merrily the cockle-boat homeward they were bringing.
To Tom's creek they came at last. Otter-lad said: 'Whish now! What's a coot without his legs, or a unless fish now? The oars they'd left behind them! Long they lay at Grindwall hythe for Tom to come and find them.
He called the winds of argosies with cargoes in to carry him across the rivers seventeen that lay between to tarry him. He landed all in loneliness where stonily the pebbles on the running river Derrilyn goes merrily for ever on.
He journeyed then through meadow-lands to Shadow-land that dreary lay, and under hill and over hill went roving still a weary way.
He sat and sang a melody, his errantry a-tarrying; he begged a pretty butterfly that fluttered by to marry him. She scorned him and she scoffed at him, she laughed at him unpitying; so long he studied wizardry and sigaldry and smithying.
He wove a tissue airy-thin to snare her in; to follow her he made him beetle-leather wing and feather wing of swallow-hair He caught her in bewilderment with filament of spider-thread; he made her soft pavilions of lilies, and a bridal bed of flowers and of thistle-down to nestle down and rest her in; and silken webs of filmy white and silver light he dressed her in. He threaded gems in necklaces, but recklessly she squandered them and fell to bitter quarrelling; then sorrowing he wandered on, and there he left her withering, as shivering he fled away; with windy weather following on swallow-wing he sped away.
He passed the archipelagoes where yellow grows the marigold, where countless silver fountains are, and mountains are of fairy-gold. He took to war and foraying, a-harrying beyond the sea, and roaming over Belmarie and Thellamie and Fantasie. He made a shield and morion of coral and of ivory, a sword he made of emerald, and terrible his rivalry with elven-knights of Aerie and Faerie, with paladins that golden-haired and shining-eyed came riding by and challenged him.
Of crystal was his habergeon, his scabbard of chalcedony; with silver tipped at plenilune his spear was hewn of ebony. His javelins were of malachite and stalactite-he brandished them, and went and fought the dragon-flies of Paradise, and vanquished them.
He battled with the Dumbledors, the Hummerhorns, and Honeybees, and won the Golden Honeycomb; and running home on sunny seas in ship of leaves and gossamer with blossom for a canopy, he sat and sang, and furbished up and burnished up his panoply. He tarried for a little while in little isles that lonely lay, and found there naught but blowing grass; and so at last the only way he took, and turned, and coming home with honeycomb, to memory his message came, and errand too!
In derring-do and glamoury he had forgot them, journeying and tourneying, a wanderer. So now he must depart again and start again bis gondola, for ever still a messenger, a passenger, a tarrier, a-roving as a feather does, a weather-driven mariner. Of moth-web light All moonlit-white She wore a woven coat, And round her kirtle Was bound a girdle Sewn with diamond dew.
She walked by day Under mantle grey And hood of clouded blue; But she went by night All glittering bright Under the starlit sky, And her slippers frail Of fishes' mail Flashed as she went by To her dancing-pool, And on mirror cool Of windless water played. As a mist of light In whirling flight A glint like glass she made Wherever her feet Of silver fleet Flicked the dancing-floor.
She looked on high To the roofless sky, And she looked to the shadowy shore; Then round she went, And her eyes she bent And saw beneath her go A Princess Shee As fair as Mee: They were dancing toe to toe!
Her gleaming eyes In great surprise Looked up to the eyes of Mee: A marvellous thing, Head-down to swing Above a starry sea! Only their feet Could ever meet; For where the ways might lie To find a land Where they do not stand But hang down in the sky No one could tell Nor learn in spell In all the elven-lore. The ostler has a tipsy cat that plays a five-stringed fiddle; And up and down he runs his bow, Now squeaking high, now purring low, now sawing in the middle.
The landlord keeps a little dog that is mighty fond of jokes; When there's good cheer among the guests, He cocks an ear at all the jests and laughs unlit he choices.
They also keep a horned cow as proud as any queen; But music turns her head like ale, And makes her wave her tufted tail and dance upon the green. And O! For Sunday there's a special pair, And these they polish up with care on Saturday afternoons. The Man in the Moon was drinking deep, and the cat began to wail;? The Man in the Moon took another mug, and then rolled beneath his chair; And there he dozed and dreamed of ale, Till in the sky the stars were pale, and dawn was in the air.
The ostler said to his tipsy cat: 'The white horses of the Moon, They neigh and champ their silver bits; "But their master's been and drowned his wits, and the Sun'll be rising soon! They rolled the Man slowly up the hill and bundled him into the Moon, While his horses galloped up in rear, And the cow came capering like a deer, and a dish ran up with a spoon.
Now quicker the fiddle went deedle-dum-diddle; the dog began to roar, The cow and the horses stood on their heads; The guests all bounded from their beds and danced upon the floor. With a ping and a pong the fiddle-strings broke! The round Moon rolled behind the hill, as the Sun raised up her head.
She hardly believed her fiery eyes; For though it was day, to her surprise they all went back to bed! On a filigree stair of glimmering hair then lightly down he went, And merry was he at last to be free on a mad adventure bent. In diamonds white he had lost delight; he was tired of his minaret Of tall moonstone that towered alone on a lunar mountain set. He would dare any peril for ruby and beryl to broider his pale attire, For new diadems of lustrous gems, emerald and sapphire.
So was lonely too with nothing to do but stare at the world of gold And heark to the hum that would distantly come as gaily round it rolled. At plenilune in his argent moon in his heart he longed for Fire: Not the limpid lights of wan selenites; for red was his desire, For crimson and rose and ember-glows, for flame with burning tongue, For the scarlet skies in a swift sunrise when a stormy day is young. He'd have seas of blues, and the living hues of forest green and fen; And he yearned for the mirth of the populous earth and the sanguine blood of men.
He coveted song, and laughter long, and viands hot, and wine, Eating pearly cakes of light snowflakes and drinking thin moonshine.
He twinkled his feet, as he thought of the meat, of pepper, and punch galore; And he tripped unaware on his slanting stair, and like a meteor, A star in flight, ere Yule one night flickering down he fell From his laddery path to a foaming bath in the windy Bay of Bel.
He began to think, lest he melt and sink, what in the moon to do, When a fisherman's boat found him far afloat to the amazement of the crew, Caught in their net all shimmering wet in a phosphorescent sheen Of bluey whites and opal lights and delicate liquid green. Against his wish with the morning fish they packed him back to land: 'You had best get a bed in an inn', they said; 'the town is near at hand'.
Only the knell of one slow bell high in the Seaward Tower Announced the news of his moonsick cruise at that unseemly hour. Not a hearth was laid, not a breakfast made, and dawn was cold and damp.
There were ashes for fire, and for grass the mire, for the sun a smoking lamp In a dim back-street. Not a man did he meet, no voice was raised in song; There were snores instead, for all folk were abed and still would slumber long.
He knocked as he passed on doors locked fast, and called and cried in vain, Till he came to an inn that had light within, and tapped at a window-pane. A drowsy cook gave a surly look, and 'What do you want?
Silver I lack and silk to my backmaybe I'll let you bide'. A silver gift the latch to lift, a pearl to pass the door; For a seat by the cook in the ingle-nook it cost him twenty more. For hunger or drouth naught passed his mouth till he gave both crown and cloak; And all that he got, in an earthen pot broken and black with smoke, Was porridge cold and two days old to eat with a wooden spoon.
For puddings of Yule with plums, poor fool, he arrived so much too soon: An unwary guest on a lunatic quest from the Mountains of the Moon. Done by! Gum by! In a cave in the hills he dwelt alone, And meat was hard to come by. Up came Tom with his big boots on. Said he to Troll: 'Pray, what is yon? For it looks like the shin o' roy nuncle Tim, As should be a-lyin' in graveyard.
This many a year has Tim been gone, And I thought he were lyin' in graveyard'. But what be bones that lie in a hole? Thy nuncle was dead as a lump o' lead, Afore I found his shinbone. He can spare a share for a poor old troll; For he don't need his shinbone'. Said Tom: 'I don't see why the likes o' thee Without axin' leave should go makin' free With the shank or the shin o' my father's kin; So hand the old bone over!
Though dead he be, it belongs to he; So hand the old bone over! A bit o' fresh meat will go down sweet! I'll try my teeth on thee now. See now! I'm tired o' gnawing old bones and skins; I've a mind to dine on thee now'. But just as he thought his dinner was caught, He found his hands had hold of naught. Before he could mind, Tom slipped behind And gave him the boot to larn him. Warn him!
Darn him! A bump o' the boot on the seat, Tom thought, Would be the way to larn him. But harder than stone is the flesh and bone Of a troll that sits in the hills alone. As well set your boot to the mountain's root, For the seat of a troll don't feel it. Peel it! Heal it! Old Troll laughed, when he heard Tom groan, And he knew his toes could feel it. Tom's leg is game, since home he came, And his bootless foot is lasting lame; But Troll don't care, and he's still there With the bone he boned from its owner.
Troll's old seat is still the same, And the bone he boned from its owner! My folk are gone beyond recall and take no thought of me; alone I'm left, the last of all from Weathertop to the Sea'. O how I wish that they were neat, and my hands were not so rough!
Yet my heart is soft, my smile is sweet, and my cooking good enough. I must go and find a friend; a-walking soft I'll wander through the Shire from end to end'.
