The Riders of Rohan arrive, Merry is with them
When the dark shadow at the Gate withdrew Gandalf still sat motinless.
But Pippin rose to his feet, as if a great weight had been lifted from him;
and he stood listening to the horns,
and it seemed to him that they would break his heart with joy.
And never in after years could he hear a horn blown in the distance
without tears starting in his eyes.
