13. Not at Home

Not at Home

In darkness the dwarves sit,
The door is broken shut,
Bilbo braves Smaug’s hall,
Yet it is dark and empty

Bilbo finds the Arkenstone,
The Heart of the Mountain,
He picks it up to keep
Knowing that he should not

The dwarves draw courage
To come down into the hall
And examine the treasure,

Which rekindles the fire
Of their dwarvish hearts
And all eagerly explore

Thorin searching for the Arkenstone,
Finds a mithril coat
Which he bestows on Bilbo

They escape through the front gate,
Trekking through the destruction ,
Towards a safe place to rest,
Wondering where Smaug is.
