    Pity, how the world is barred from the main body of his poetical works. Perhaps the executors of his estate would finally step into the 21st century.

    It's a pity there isn't a proper full anthology of Tolkien's poems as they are essential reading for all fans. I've managed to compile my own by trawling the internet and downloading them to docs on my tablet.

    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.

    Sir JRR Tolkien always inspires me...! 1

    a good writer, a good man, positively brilliant

  • Sara S (1/22/2010 1:08:00 PM)

    very, very good writer and poet!

  • Adrian Rogers (2/27/2008 5:30:00 PM)

    Mr L.R wants to be his freind

  • Mo. (11/9/2007 10:24:00 AM)

    An expressional poet,
    Easy to understand

  • Matt Harvey (11/19/2005 2:25:00 PM)

    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

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.

The Sea

To the Sea, to the Sea! The white gulls are crying,
The wind is blowing, and the white foam is flying.
West, west away, the round sun is falling.
Grey ship, grey ship, do you hear them calling?
The voices of my people gone before me?
I will leave, I will leave the woods that bore me;
For our days are ending and our years failing.
I will pass the wide waters lonely sailing.
Long are the waves on the Last Shore falling,
