An Energy Boost from Tolkien


Song Of 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.

– JRR Tolkien

Sing hey! for the bath at close of day
that washes the weary mud away!
A loon is he that will not sing:
O! Water Hot is a noble thing!

– From the Bath Song of  JRR Tolkien

  1. That top picture of the tree woman just struck me as gorgeous. And I love the second line, but also the entire poem. Great energy boost, thank you!


  2. Such a great way to start my day, thank you so much for sharing 🙂 Loved the poem and especially the top picture…
    Thank you also very much for stopping by my blog and liking some of my posts 🙂 Have a magnificent day


  3. Is Tolkien really the credit for “not all who wander are lost”? If so, it’s nice to know. I’ve seen that quote many places but never known who wrote it. Thanks for sharing this. A great set of lines. Peace, Ik
