Aragorn: Bilbo, Elrond told me that you needed me to help finish a poem? What can I do?

Bilbo: Let me read you what I have so far. 

Bilbo: *recites completed Earendil Was a Mariner poem*

Aragorn: That, uh, sounds pretty fine. What part did you need me for?

Bilbo: I just wanted you to hear how awesome my poetry is.

“It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.”

The Road goes ever on and on

Down from the door where it began.

Now far ahead the Road has gone,

And I must follow, if I can,

Pursuing it with eager feet,

Until it joins some larger way

Where many paths and errands meet.

And whither then? I cannot say.
