†25 RETHE, S.R. 1422: THE THREE TRAVELLERS REMEMBER
In the world of Men itís called the New Reckoning:
The day the whole world was saved from darkness;
The day the Ring went into the Fire;
The day the Enemy was cast down;
The day the Shadow finally lost.
Men celebrate the day with
Pomp and songs and
Feasts and ceremonies
Friend and cousin,
Who gave his all
His heart and his self,
And his spirit and his finger.
Who lost himself to pain and guilt--
The day the Ring went into the fire;
The day the whole world was saved from darkness.
In the Shire itís just another fine day in spring.
