O! Wanderers in the shadowed land
despair not! For though dark they stand,
all woods there be must end at last,
and see the open sun go past:
the setting sun, the rising sun,
the day's end, or the day begun.
For east or west all woods must fail . . .
~As recited by Frodo Baggins (The Fellowship of the Ring - Book 1, Ch. 6 "The Old Forest")
