All that is Gold Does Not Glitter


All That is Gold Does Not Glitter
by
J.R.R. Tolkien (1892-1973)
From The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
(A poem that Gandalf uses to describe Aragorn.)

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.

  2. Let me try again:
    It's nice to meet another Tolkienite! LOTR is one of my all time favorite books that I've read I don't know how many times. I really need to read it again. It's been awhile.
