Wordy Wednesday

All That is Gold Does Not Glitter - J R R Tolkien.

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.

I've never come across that one before - I love it - simple and to the point!

Great words. Now feel all intelligent and clever for reading a poem before lunch!
Found your lovely blog via a link in A Mermaid's Purse and am enjoying my stay.
I shall be your newest follower so I can keep up with all your antics - looking forward too seeing that bathroom finished. (Advocado green only looks good on avocados in my opinion)
If you have time, do pop over and see my blog. I love a bit of crochet, craft and bargainous finds!

Xx

I love this - Gonecycling (Mr Threadnoodle) is currently wading his way through LOTR for the nth time
