  1. Just had to drop in after seeing this quote. One of my favourite reads and, for once, I was not underwhelmed by the film version, even though there were a few changes made for the cinematography.

    All that is gold does not glitter,
    Not all those who wander are lost;
    The old that is strong does not wither,
    Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

    From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
    A light from the shadows shall spring;
    Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
    The crownless again shall be king.

    I thought some of your followers might enjoy the fuller poem, The Riddle of Strider….not by Tolkein, but by The Baggins himself 🙃

    • Oh that is wonderful Gary. Thank you so much for including the poem.
      One of my favourite reads as well. All the best.

      • My pleasure Chris…couldn’t just pass by a Tolkein quote and not comment. Just not cricket that! Glad you like the poem too. In fact this is the second post I’ve dropped a stanza or two in today. The other one was in response to a Dark Tower post….just had to put up some of Brownings Childe Rowland to the Dark Tower Came…. One must watch this behaviour lest I collect some tag as a wandering lyricist dropped. Cheers for replying too 😊

  2. A fabulous quote. Any many thanks to the darling Gary for providing us with the poem 🙂

  3. Precisely so. Now … off to the Cabinet with you.

  4. I say this to myself fairly often! 🙂
