I'M BACK!!!!




You have come to the house of
Tom Bombadil,
Master of the Forest.
I am Goldberry- Tel'yeste'verne',
Tom Bombadil's wife.

'O slender as a 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!'


Who is Tom Bombadil?
Tom is believed to be one of the Maiar, the creators of Middle Earth. Tom governs the Old Forest and almost never comes out of it. He has no care for the goings of the world outside. Tom calls himself Eldest; the elves call him the First. He and Goldberry live beside the Withywindle, governing the Forest.

Where did Goldberry come from?
This is the song that Tom sings:
'I had an errand there: gathering water-lilies, green leaves and lilies white to please my pretty lady, the last ere the year's end to keep them from the winter, to flower by her pretty feet till the snows are melted. Each year at summer's end I go to find them for her, in a wide pool, deep and clear, far down Withywindle; there they open first in spring and there they linger latest. By that pool long ago I found the River-daughter, fair young Goldberry sitting in the rushes. Sweet was her singing then, and her heart was beating!'


by J.R.R. Tolkien


It is said that Goldberry, or Baccador as she is called in Italian, has the beauty of a elf-queen and a voice prettier than the birds'. She is also thought to be a Maia or descended from one.
