Well read Becca: I didnt know he wrote poetry! Ive a short talk about Keats on my blog. 😉
Enjoyed hearing this! What is the image used in the video?
The image was done by Alan Lee, a prominent Tolkien illustrator. The image is of when the Elves first awaken in Middle-Earth by the shores of Cuiviénen.
The (mental) image of the elves discovering the earth and naming its contents under starlight is my favorite in all of his stories. So great job with the video thumbnail selection! I also wasn’t aware of this poem, thank you.
An opin road I’ve golden toads that seem to stair from youth 2 old. Jung gave it a home. Tolkien wanted the ring. Boeth
Oh there goes my heart… 🙂 and the artwork („At Lake Cuivienen“ by Ted Nasmith) is really amazing. It touches me like the memory of a past life. The poet Nikos Kazantzakis said it beautiful: „My soul comes from better worlds and I have an incurable homesickness of the stars.”
