 “‘Come dear folk!’ she said, taking Frodo by the hand. ‘Laugh and be merry! I am Goldberry, daughter of the River.’ Then lightly she passed them and closing the door she turned her back to it, with her white arms spread out across it. ‘Let us shut out the night!’ she said. (…) ‘Fair lady Goldberry!’ Frodo said again. ‘Now the joy that was hidden in the songs we heard is made plain to me.

O slender as a willow-wand! O clearer than clear water!
O reed by the living pool! Fair River-daughter! O spring-time and summer-time, and spring again after!
 O wind on the waterfall, and the leaves’ laughter!’

 “‘Welcome!’ she said. ‘I had not heard that folk of the Shire were so sweet-tongued.’”
