A Walking Song: A New Road or Secret Gate

I recently thought about the Tolkien’s “Walking Songs” that hobbits sing as they walk. In one Walking Song, we hear this:

Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate

I love the hope in this song. I love the sense of nearing adventure, of mystery, of newness. I love approaching the day like a corner I’m rounding. I open my eyes to new roads and secret gates.
