2. Strawberries in Spring
Movie verse: Lines in italics are quotes from the movie.
Sam, holding Frodo on the side of Mount Doom, was crying. They had come so far. Frodo was losing his battle with the evil of the ring. They were both so weary yet they had to go on.
'Remind him of the Shire,' Sam thought to himself, 'it will give him the strength he needs.'
"Do you remember the taste of strawberries, ripe in the spring?"
"No Sam, I can't recall the taste of food"
Sam's heart sank; always having the Shire in mind made all of this worth it. How could Frodo continue without thoughts of saving the Shire?
