Oh my, how beautiful it all is. Your commentary, the pictures, and the exquisite poem. So much of my "Quarantined" series of stories was meant to capture the evolving and very special relationship between these two very special hobbits.

Tolkien really captures the heart of them both in these few lines...

They spoke no more of the small news of the Shire far away, nor of the dark shadows and perils that encompassed them, but of the fair things they had seen in the world together, of the Elves, of the stars, of trees, and the gentle fall of the bright year in the woods.

Shirebound, I know you are extremely fond of Bilbo as a character, so I am not surprised to hear his relationship with Frodo has inspired you to write. And I love the quote you singled out. Yes, they shared a lot. That they could share delight in these things must have created a kinship in them that was soul-deep.
