    J.R.R. Tolkien was, in my opinion, one of if not the most creative and inspirational writers and poets of all time. His work will never fail to sweep me off into another world. May he rest in peace.

    An expressional poet,
    Easy to understand

    Tolkein is the ultimate driving force of the universe! Not only as a poet, but as a writer. No one shall ever rival him for awsomeness.
    The only other thing I want to say is that this site has only a very small sample of his poems, and there should be much more.

Best Poem of John Ronald Reuel Tolkien

I Sit And Think

I sit beside the fire and think
of all that I have seen,
of meadow-flowers and butterflies
in summers that have been;

Of yellow leaves and gossamer
in autumns that there were,
with morning mist and silver sun
and wind upon my hair.

I sit beside the fire and think
of how the world will be
when winter comes without a spring
that I shall never see.

For still there are so many things
that I have never seen:
in every wood in every spring
there is a different green.

I sit beside the fire and think
of people long ago,
and people ...

Bath-Song

Sing hey! For the bath at close of day
that washes the weary mud away
A loon is he that will not sing
O! Water Hot is a noble thing!

O! Sweet is the sound of falling rain,
and the brook that leaps from hill to plain;
but better then rain or rippling streams
is Water Hot that smokes and steams.

[Hata Bildir]
