Chapter XI:  A Knife in the Dark

As they prepared for sleep in the inn at Bree, darkness lay
on Buckland;  a mist strayed in the dells and along the
riverbank.  The house at Crickhollow stood silent.

The Midgewater Marshes

'I am being eaten alive!' cried Pippin.
'Midgewater!   There are more
midges than water!'

'What do they live on when they can't get
hobbit?' asked Sam, scratching his neck.

Lightning at Weathertop
    As Frodo lay, tired but unable to close his eyes, it seemed to
    him that far away there came a light in the eastern sky;
    it flashed and faded many times.  It was not the dawn,
    for that was still some hours off.

    'What is that light?' he said to Strider, who had risen,
    and was standing, gazing ahead into the night.

    'I do not know,' Strider answered.  'It is too distant to make
    out.  It is like lightning that leaps up from the hill-tops.'

Power Can Be Held
In the Smallest of Things
Three Rings for the Elven-kings
under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords
in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men
doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord
on his dark throne,
In the Land of Mordor
where the Shadows lie,

One Ring to rule them all,
One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all
and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor
where the Shadows lie.

One Ring
To Rule Them All
  One Ring to Find Them

The Ring!
...And In the Darkness Bind Them !
