 Up to The Shire, 

Rounded doors. 

Tall ones warned, 

Lintel’s short. 

Beams are low, 

Pantry’s full; 

Bread, jam, wine. 

Safe from intruders. 

Into our Shire home, 

Scrolled furniture, 

Comfortable repose. 

Sweetest resting place;

Don’t force us, 

Come out. 

Adventure’s dangerous; 

But my blood, 

Pulsed madly, 

So I went. 

From The Shire, 

Then life, 

I lived well.

    1. Thanks Joy. I’m glad you caught that. Yes it’s ideal and beautiful but adventure never seems to be comfortable but in the end is worth more. At least that’s what I felt reading the Hobbit and LOTR, seeing the movies. The photograph was very much like entering the hobbit village to me. Although I’ve always thought some of the Elf kingdoms in the forests would be the most beautiful 🙂

      1. I agree with you about the Elf kingdoms in the forests being the most beautiful – it would be hard to leave, once I’d gotten there, no matter what call to adventure I was feeling. I don’t know about “adventure” per se, but I certainly love to travel and see new places and things. Not to Mordor, though!
