Poetry Thursday

It's J.R.R. Tolkiens birthday today!!!!! And I'm sure Gilbert would approve a brief breaking of the conventions here to post a Tolkien poem.

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.

Happy Birthday Tolkien! Not only does Chesterton approve (we talked this morning), but I approve. We, Algernon the First, do herby grant our worthy subject Ria free from any and all punishment for the momentary laps from tradition and usage. Audiences from 9:00 to 12:00, good day.

My humble thanks!(:
