"Tom Bombadil was the name of one of the oldest inhabitants of the kingdom; but he was a hale and hearty fellow. Four foot high in his boots he was, and three feet broad. He wore a tall hat with a blue feather, his jacket was blue, and his boots were yellow."

In 1934, Professor Tolkien published a poem about Tom in The Oxford Magazine. At first he had entitled it The History of Tom Bombadil, but then changed the title to The Adventures of Tom Bombadil. It is essentially the same poem that was published many years later as the title- piece in the collection The Adventures of Tom Bombadil and other verses from The Red Book.

This poem, of course, tells the story of Tom's first meeting with Goldberry, the River-woman's daughter, and ends with their marriage. In between, Tom is captured by Old Man Willow, ambushed by a family of badgers, and haunted by a Barrow-wight. But although he is caught off- guard in each of these encounters, Tom just has to take a moment to gather his wits, then declare himself and speak a few words to set matters straight.
