Past and Future jumping the gun 1


I know I should wait and listen to tomorrow's class which I won't be able to do until next Sunday or whenever it is posted but I cannot wait.
Reading the 5th verse:
I sit beside the fire and think
of people long ago,
and people who will see a world
that I will never know.
It is classic what does Bilbo do in Rivendell. He writes songs about the past. And, (Thanks prof for allowing me to be lazy and start a sentence with a conjunction) what does he wonder about the people of the future and the world they will inhabit.
