Bedouin. When God wanted to create the horse, he said to the South Wind, "I want to make a creature of you. Condense." And the Wind condensed.

WOODEN SHIPS THEY are remembering forests where they grew,The midnight quiet, and the giant dance; And all the murmuring summers that they knew Are haunting still their altered circumstance. Leaves they have lost, and robins in the nest. Tug of the goodly earth denied to ships.

Hardly a day goes by
Without the sound of the crowd
Rumbling along climbing into stands
Getting ready to watch the show
Taking out handkerchiefs
Smiling sneezing coughing a lot
When will it all end — and how?
In fire or in snow?

WE ARE GOING.
They came in to the little town
A semi-naked band subdued and silent
All that remained of their tribe.
They came here to the place of their old bora ground
Where now the many white men hurry about like ants.

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I intended to be. – Douglas Adams
Chip the glasses and crack the plates!
Blunt the knives and bend the forks!
That’s what Bilbo hates –
Smash the bottles and burn the corks!
Cut the cloth and tread on the fat!
Pour the milk on the pantry floor!
Leave the bones on the bedroom mat!
Splash the wine on every door!
Dump the crocks in a boiling bowl;
Pound them up with a thumping pole;
And when you’ve finished, if any are whole,
Send them down the hall to roll!
That’s what Bilbo Baggins hates!
So, carefully! carefully! with the plates!
THE HOBBIT. JRR TOLKIEN.
