Tom Bombadil and Goldberry

“Ho! Tom Bombadil, Tom Bombadillo! 
By water, wood and hill, by reed and willow, 
By fire, sun and moon, harken now and hear us! 
Come, Tom Bombadil, for our need is near us!”

"O slender as willow-wand! O clearer than clear water!
O reed by the living pool! Fair River-daughter!
O spring-time and summer-time, and spring again after!
O wind on the waterfall, and the leaves' laughter!"
