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.

Flowers, true love and family, and a nice smial, all on the banks of the Brandywine - staples of hobbit life praised in this rousing and very hobbity song. Very well done, Dreamflower!

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?
