Bilbo's Last Song* is considered by many to be Tolkien's epilogue to his classic work *The Lord of the Rings*. As Bilbo Baggins takes his final voyage to the Undying Lands, he must say goodbye to Middle-earth. Poignant and lyrical, the song is both a longing to set forth on his ultimate journey and a tender farewell to friends left behind. Pauline Baynes's jewel-like illustrations lushly depict both this final voyage and scenes from *The Hobbit*, as Bilbo remembers his first journey while he prepares for his last.
