    We start before the sun has raised its head.
    The air is cool, the road it stretches far.
    We might have slept, instead we forge ahead
    And while we walk we watch a fading star.

    Too soon the sun is heating up the air.
    A rest! But no, we still must cover miles.
    No grumbles now about not being fair
    The journey's end we think about with smiles.

    For we are out here on a special day
    To meet a friend who has been gone for long.
    And even though he has been far away
    The ties that once us bound are still kept strong.

    For friends we come to Shire's edge this eve.
    For friends to meet will chase away all grief.

    Wonderful poem, Miss Tibba!

    And now I see it again, I recognise it as one of them "Sonnets". So, full marks for your poetry homework! A grand job!

    Now, just Nimelia's homework to come......
