    For a pastiche inspired by 'Earendil' and Tolkien's variation on it, 'Errantry', see 'Poetastery' on the Stamfordwrites.org website: www.stamfordwrites.org/tw/tiki-index.php? page=Poetastery (Report) Reply

    I love all of Tolkien's poetry, and this one is especially wonderful. He really has a superb way with language - it just flows, mellifluously, when read aloud.

    I would like to say, however, that the typos present in it - 'panolpy', 'valient', etc. - on this website are very distracting and ought to be remedied.
