3. Stronger Songs
Fangorn felt it in the water, in the earth, in the air. A song echoed through all creation: those who would not be hasty should prepare to leave. Beleriand would fall.
Hey dol! merry dol! ring a dong dillo!
A strange creature danced toward him, his blue cap-feather flitting in the morning breeze.
Tom Bom, Jolly Tom, Tom Bombadillo!
This was no Elf! Fangorn tried to make sense of the nonsense coming from his lips, but without success.
Come sing with Tom now, walk beneath the willows!
Yes, they would journey together, for a while. Fangorn would learn these new hasty songs.
Note: The first two lines of Tom Bombadil's song come from The Fellowship of the Rings, "The Old Forest"
