PostSubject: The Road Goes Ever On by J.R.R. Tolkien   Thu Sep 25, 2008 11:06 am

Roads go ever ever on,
Over rock and under tree,
By caves where never sun has shone,
By streams that never find the sea;
Over snow by winter sown,
And through the merry flowers of June,
Over grass and over stone,
And under mountains in the moon.

Roads go ever ever on,
Under cloud and under star.
Yet feet that wandering have gone
Turn at last to home afar.
Eyes that fire and sword have seen,
And horror in the halls of stone
Look at last on meadows green,
And trees and hills they long have known.

The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way,
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.

Still 'round the corner there may wait
A new road or secret gate;
And though I oft have passed them by,
A day will come at last when I
Shall take the hidden paths that run
West of the Moon, East of the Sun.

PostSubject: Cool Poem   Thu Sep 25, 2008 11:10 am

You guys should look up this poem on wikipedia or elsewhere. It is amazing! Tolkien wrote like 5 different versions and used them throughout his stories. It amazes me how realistic that is, how stories, songs, and poems change over time as they are passed from person to person. I want to be able to accomplish realism like that in the RP.
