It cannot be seen, cannot be felt,
Cannot be heard, cannot be smelt.
It lies behind stars and under hills,
And empty holes it fills,
It comes first and follows after,
Ends life, kills laughter.
[Darkness]

This thing all things devours:
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats high mountain down.
[Time]

What has roots as nobody sees,
Is taller than trees,
Up, up it goes,
And yet never grows?
[Mountain]

Alive without breath,
As cold as death;
Never thirsty, ever drinking,
All in mail never clinking.
[Fish]

Voiceless it cries,
Wingless flutters,
Toothless bites,
Mouthless mutters.

Deep down here by the dark water lived old Gollum, a small slimy creature. I don’t know where he came from, nor who or what he was. He was Gollum — as dark as darkness, except for two big round pale eyes in his thin face. He had a little boat, and he rowed about quite quietly on the lake; for lake it was, wide and deep and deadly cold. He paddled it with large feet dangling over the side, but never a ripple did he make. Not he. He was looking out of his pale lamp-like eyes for blind fish, which he grabbed with his long fingers as quick as thinking.

"What has it got in its pocketses?" The sound came hissing louder and sharper, and as he looked towards it, to his alarm Bilbo now saw two small points of light peering at him. As suspicion grew in Gollum's mind, the light of his eyes burnt with a pale flame.

See, my precious: if we has it, then we can escape, even from Him, eh? Perhaps we grows very strong, stronger than the Wraiths. Lord Smeagol? Gollum the Great? The Gollum!
