11. The Spring of 1420

Only in the glorious spring of 1420 when the mallorn bloomed in the meadow and many women gave birth to children with shining golden hair when fields far and near brought forth crops of mythic proportions and old men spoke of these days as if they had already passed ‘twas only then when the Shire swelled with prosperity and the last marks of Sharkey were erased by lush green grass, the hard work of many determined Hobbits, and dust from a small Elven box, only when the sterile oblivion of the Black Lands had faded to sometimes seem an unlikely dream only as he stood under the arch hand-in-hand with Rosie Cotton only then did Sam realize with his whole being how much of his heart’s life depended upon simple joys, such as coaxing vibrant blossoms from a small shy garden, the sparkle in his love’s eyes as she bade him wash his hands for dinner, or collecting warm brown eggs from his own white chickens. ********** original poem by William Carlos Williams so much depends upon a red wheel barrow glazed with rain water beside the white chickens.
