May

Itís May again Sam
- fresh greens and flowers.
Like it was when Gandalf came
to tell of shadows from the past.
I will not forget.

Itís May again Sam
- fresh greens and flowers.
Green was the Stone
set on King Elessarsí brow.
I will not forget.

Itís May again Sam
- fresh greens and flowers.
Flowers Rosie wore in her hair
when she was married to you.
I will not forget.

Itís May again Sam
- fresh greens and flowers.
Fresh as a flower was little Elanor
sitting in the green of her first May.
I will not forget.

Itís May again Sam.
- fresh greens and flowers.
Seeds you gave me at our parting;
see what they have become Ė
Forget-me-nots.
