Lilies on the Water (Merry and Pippin, rated G)

This is a rather more conventional water drabble.

Title: Lilies on the Water
Author: rubynye
Characters: Merry and Pippin
Rating: G like a gee gee thing.
Warnings: Quoted poetry
Disclaimer: Not mine, especially the poetry.

Dozing on the Withywindle's mossy bank, Merry gradually noticed Pippin's humming. "What's that, Pip?"

"Old Tom Bombadil is a merry fellow," Pippin sang in answer; Merry joined in on "Bright blue his jacket is, and his boots are yellow." "I was just thinking of him," Pippin said, "his singing and his kindness."

"And his fair wife Goldberry! Reeds by the shady pool, lilies on the water, Old Tom Bombadil and the River-daughter!"

As Merry and Pippin sang, it seemed another voice joined theirs, at once deeper and cheerier; startled, they sat up and looked round, but saw no one.
