A Tribute to Nature, Diversity and Tolkien

Sometimes nature arouses the same feeling in me as the beauty of Tolkien’s writing:

Sing all ye joyful, now sing all together!
The wind’s in the tree-top, the wind’s in the heather;
The stars are in blossom, the moon is in flower,
And bright are the windows of night in her tower.

Dance all ye joyful, now dance all together!
Soft is the grass, and let foot be like feather!
The river is silver, the shadows are fleeting;
Merry is May-time, and merry our meeting.

Sigh no more pine, till the wind of the morn!
Fall Moon! Dark be the land!
Hush! Hush! Oak, ash and thorn!
Hushed by all water, till dawn is at hand!
All Ye Joyful by J. R. R. Tolkien

Don’t adventures ever have an end? I suppose not. Someone else always has to carry on the story.

  1. I almost always end up thinking of Tolkien when walking. Especially the first part of Frodos journeys from Hobbiton to Farmer Maggot.
    The part when he has come to a hilltop and is “looking out over a sea of green”.

    • That story is a wonderful introduction to a marvellous adventure.
      You made me think of my walk in Norway. Though I didn’t meet Gildor 😞
      Walking through unfamiliar terrain. The joyous meeting with other people and sometimes an unexpected help from a stranger. Eagerly sharing the knowledge about trails and weather and last but not least learn that the shortest path is not always the easiest 😊
      Thanks a lot for sharing!!

  2. If someone else has to carry on this story, Hanna, let it be me! 🙂 Your images are gorgeous. I especially want to walk through that arch of tree branches, and through that red door!

    • You chose rightly, Heide: The red door is an entrance to a wonderful bog ❤
      Thanks a lot for participating in my celebration of an adventurous world 🤗
