Geeking out

August 23, 2006

Stumbled across this poem. Tolkein Tolkien**. Kill me now, because I really like it.

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.

**Apparently my geek cred isn’t very high since I misspelled his name. I think I feel better about that. 😉

    “There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something. You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after.” – J.R.R. Tolkien

    Sometimes the best things in life are the things you stumble across.

    You’ve never read The Lord of the Rings? If you like Camulod and you like WoW you’d love The Lord of the Rings! (the books are so much better than the movies)

    Tall ships and tall kings
    Three times three
    What brought they from the foundered land
    Over the flowing sea?
    Seven stars and seven stones
    And one white tree.
