Tolkien’s Birthday 2021

Happy Birthday J.R.R. Tolkien!

JRR Tolkien

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien
(January 3, 1892 – September 2, 1973)

excerpts from Kortirion among the Trees

Seeing afar the icy shears
Of Winter, and his blue-tipped spears…
… O! gentle time
When the late mornings are bejeweled with rime,
And the blue shadows gather on the distant woods.
The fairies know thy early crystal dusk
And put in secret on their twilit hoods
Of grey and filmy purple, and long bands
Of frosted starlight sewn by silver hands.

-Tolkien, The Book of Lost Tales: The Cottage of Lost Play
