In the House of Tom Bombadil

Hey dol! merry dol! ring a dong dillo!

Ring a dong! hop along! fal lal the willow!

Tom Bom, jolly Tom, Tom Bombadillo!


Hey! Come merry dol! derry dol! My darling!

Light goes the weather-wind and the feathered starling.

Down along under Hill, shining in the sunlight,

Waiting on the doorstep for the cold starlight,

There my pretty lady is, River-woman's daughter,

Slender as the willow-wand, clearer than the water.

Old Tom Bombadil water-lilies bringing

Comes hopping home again. Can you hear him singing?

Hey! Come merry dol! derry dol! and merry-o,

Goldberry, Goldberry, merry yellow berry-o!

Poor old Willow-man, you tuck your roots away!

Tom's in a hurry now. Evening will follow day.

Tom's going home home again water-lilies bringing.

Hey! come derry dol! Can you hear me singing?


Well, I've wanted to do a minifig-scale LOTR creation for a while now, and since Tom Bombadil is one of my favorite characters from the books, I thought that it would be fun to build the scene where Frodo, Sam, Merry, and Pippin visit the home of Tom Bombadil and Goldberry. Since this scene isn't in the movies, I designed Tom's house based on the book's descriptions and my own imagination. Thanks for viewing!
