J.R.R. Tolkien’s lost poem #Tolkien #Elvish #LostPoem

Twenty years have flowed away down the long river
And never in my life will return for me from the sea
Ah years in which looking far away I saw ages long past
When still trees bloomed free in a wide country
And thus now all begins to wither
With the breath of cold-hearted wizards
To know things they break them
And their stern lordship they establish
Through fear of death.

-J.R.R. Tolkien, 1958
