Then the Giraffe Stopped By

Then the giraffe stopped by.

(“Not all those who wander are lost . . .”)

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.

—J. R. R. Tolkien ***
