Journey's End
J.R.R.Tolkien

In western lands beneath the Sun
The flowers may rise in Spring,
The trees may bud, the waters run,
The merry finches sing.
Or there maybe 'tis cloudless night,
And swaying branches bear
The Elven-stars as jewels white
Amid their branching hair.

Though here at journey's end I lie
In darkness buried deep,
Beyond all towers strong and high,
Beyond all mountains steep,
Above all shadows rides the Sun
And Stars for ever dwell:
I will not say the Day is done,
Nor bid the Stars farewell.



***********************

I am always surprised when people tell me they skip over the poems. (and most of them do!) Not only do I love (most of them) for themselves, but I love watching them change, in language and form, as we travel Midle-earth . They are such an integral part of defining the various cultures.
