September 26: A Far Green Country

September 26

Frodo and the Hobbits stay with Tom Bombadil. Frodo's dream. "That night they heard no noises. But either in his dreams or out of them, he could not tell which, Frodo heard a sweet singing running in his mind: a song that seemed to come like a pale light behind a grey rain-curtain, and growing stronger to turn the veil all to glass and silver, until at last it was rolled back, and a far green country opened before him under a swift sunrise. The vision melted, and Frodo awoke feeling a rather depressing sense of predestination. Everything is fixed, and you can't change it, echoed the ethereal chorus in his memory." Fellowship of the Ring; Book I, Chapter VIII
