Stuck in the Depths of Winter

Poetry

Snow falls on my spuds,

It has ruined my harvest,

When will spring return?

 

Snow on my window,

I can not spy my neighbours,

What are they up to?

 

Ice lays on the ground,

I slip and slide to the pub,

I can't feel my legs!

 

A nice warm supper,

A hearty winters broth, Yum!

Winter can be nice!

 

Relaxing by fire,

Smoking in the warmth of home,

This is not so bad...

 

A gift

It had been another quiet night in Brightdown. Popski stood beside the large village gate his lantern swinging in his hand. He waited until the last rays of the sun had begun to disappear below the hills before turning to slowly close the gate. In the old days it had been locked with a large iron key but now it was merely closed at night. This was mainly because the Shire was such a quiet safe place to live that folks rarely locked even their own front doors, but it was also because the key had been lost by a drunken Gate Keeper many years before.

Story

Popski walked the short distance from his front door to the large Oak tree that overhung the gate to Brightdown village. It was under the great sweeping arms of this Oak that he usual took shelter if the rain was heavy or the sun too hot. Popski had heard tales when he was a small child of great trees that walked and spoke to one another in a language of their own making.

Flory, hard at work in The Great Smials Library

Books, maps and a cup of tea.

Story

The majority of the dusting had been completed and already at least three families of mice had been removed from the Great Smials Library when Flory finally sat down for a cup of tea and slice of cake. All around her stacks of books lay in disorganized piles and orderly stacks. Flory was only now seeing the full extent of the job ahead of her. Even after the shelves had been cleaned she would then have to go through all the books and put them in some sort of order so that she knew precisely how many books there were.

The big day is finally here! Mam and Dad cooked a great, big breakfast full of all of me favourites (including those scrumptiously tasty cheese and mushroom muffins Grammy would make when she came to visit). I already have a basket full of goodies, enough for the road and for second breakfast. Aconite tells me that there’s a tavern right over the Brandywine Bridge that serves one of the best beers in the farthing. I tell him I didn’t know rating beers of the Shire was part of a bounder’s duty!
