Hobbit love poetry--with mention of food, drink, and sweet Hobbit maidens, and eventually marriage and a lovely fauntling as well. A sweet poem, and truly worthy of Meriadoc's cousin Berilac. May we all know such ease of life, there on the banks of the Brandywine.

A charming Hobbit love song in the style of an old English folk song. What Hobbit lass could resist if this were sung to her by her love?
