On first looking into Jackson's Hobbit

Much have I travell'd in realms of lore
And many a world of fancy seen
Round the Middle Earth's kingdoms I've been
That to Eru's music the Ainur bore

Of these to the Hobbit my love I bore
An adventure beyond the Shire's green
That starts with the dwarven song serene
Of gold and silver and stones of yore

Yet never did I see its glory before
Till Jackson made it for the screen
Oh! How his magic does swim and soar
Following Tolkien's magnificent mien

This is then an Ainur's song
Sung in music that to Eru did belong!
