Not all those who wander …
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 😊
A fabulous quote. Any many thanks to the darling Gary for providing us with the poem 🙂
Yes indeed. You are a champion Gary. So are you Lucy. 😁🍻
We are the champions, my friend 😉
Why thank you dear Lucy. I do hope your ailment is much improved 😷
Feeling tip top, my dear chap! Hope you are well also 🙂
Good show indeed. Alas I refer you to the text relating to stats of wellness under fire from invasive bugs!!
Precisely so. Now … off to the Cabinet with you.
I say this to myself fairly often! 🙂
So do I. And tomorrow I am off on a journey so I am feeling that.
All the best. Chris. 😃
