"Faerie is a perilous land, and in it are pitfalls for the unwary, and dungeons for the overbold." J.R.R. Tolkein



I am off down the road
Where the fairy lanterns glowed
And the little pretty flittermice are flying :
A slender band of grey
It runs creepily away
And the hedges and the grasses are a-sighing.
The air is full of wings,
And of blundering beetle- things
That warn you with their whirring and their humming.
O ! I hear the tiny horns
Of enchanted leprechauns
And the padding feet of many gnomes a-coming !

O ! the lights : O ! the gleams : O ! the little tinkly sound
O ! the rustle of their noiseless little robes :
O ! the echo of their feet — of their little happy feet :
O ! their swinging lamps in little starlit globes.

I must follow in their train
Down the crooked fairy lane
Where the coney-rabbits long ago have gone,
And where silverly they sing
In a moving moonlit ring
All a-twinkle with the jewels they have on.
They are fading round the turn
Where the glow-worms palely burn
And the echo of their padding feet is dying !
O ! it's knocking at my heart —
Let me go ! O ! let me start !
For the little magic hours are all a-flying.

O ! the warmth ! O ! the hum ! O ! the colours in the dark !
O ! the gauzy wings of golden honey-flies !
O ! the music of their feet — of their dancing goblin feet !
O ! the magic ! O ! the sorrow when it dies.
~J.R.R. Tolkien - Goblin Feet 1915



this is my first ever attempt at photo manipulation. i had so much fun doing this and plan to try and do more. this was inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, hence all the quotes and the title. The title is supposedy written in "runes" which is the language Tolkien coded some of the maps and illustrations with. i got the translation from here. I'm not sure on the accuracy, however. Wilderland, for those of you who have not seen or read anything by Tolkien, is a fictional realm where most of his stories take place...in Middle Earth. i hope i have everyone credited, if you see something you think belongs to you or someone else please note me and i'll check my resources again. hope you all enjoy!

:woohoo:

I'm sure you've heard this a million times already but wow~ This is simply mesmerizing. I could so easily get lost in the atmosphere. I love the use of different color saturation, really makes the piece glow. =)
