"When winter first begins to bite" is a brief poem spoken by Bilbo Baggins to Frodo in "The Ring Goes South", in which he warns Frodo of the dangers of traveling in wintertime.

Text

When winter first begins to bite
and stones crack in the frosty night,
when pools are black and trees are bare,
'tis evil in the Wild to fare.
