At first it was difficult to see the road. “Dust…” he said aloud. His two companions also had trouble with the ‘dust’ in their eyes. They turned their backs to the sea. Their fat ponies made stolid progress under still green trees, over well-trodden paths hedged with late flowers and seeding grasses.
Eventually Pippin began a song, Merry joined him - neither as tuneful as they were - but Sam was grateful for their company. ‘All things must pass’… he couldn’t remember who said that now, but it was true enough. He arrived home at evening.
‘Well, I’m back,’ he said.
