Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost.

I Was Going To …

Honest I Was …

I was going to tell you about the day I had today. After all, my travels made me very happy today.

But you know, I just got home. And I am totally tired. Started leaning toward posting the story tomorrow. It deserves a wide awake writer, after all.

Then I thought how today is the last day of NaPoWriMo … so if ever there was a reason for two poems in one day, this would be it.

jrr tolkein quote luggage tagAnd then someone posted this quote … by J.R.R. Tolkien … with this picture of a luggage tag.

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 like it.

A lot.

Especially the first verse.

I even like the luggage tag.

I want one just like it …
