I have recently discovered a site for reading poetry, and I stumbled across this poem by Tolkien that I really enjoy. References have been made to the title in songs such as Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin and Family Business by Kanye West (both great songs). I thought I would share the poem with you all.
All That is Gold Does Not Glitter
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.
— J. R. R. Tolkien —
