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.
~ From The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkein.
The Riddle of Strider, a poem contained in a letter from Gandalf which the innkeeper gives to Frodo, The Fellowship of the Ring Book 1, Chapter ‘Strider’.
