Commentary by Ivan M. Granger
Sung by Frodo in the forest of Lothlorien when they finally have time to express their grief. Gandalf fought the Balrog, a fire demon, on a bridge in the underground realm of Khazad-dum. Gandalf the Grey is, at this point, thought to be dead -- and, in fact, he does die, but he is sent back by Iluvitar (God), reborn as Gandalf the White.
"weary pilgrim" One of Gandalf's names is The Grey Pilgrim, a reference to the fact that Gandalf never settles in one place but constantly travels throughout Middle Earth.
