The Travelling Song

(The Old Walking Song - lyrics: J.R.R. Tolkien)

Part 1

The road goes ever on and on
down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the road is gone
and I must follow, if I can.
Pursueing it with weary feat
until it meets some larger way,
where many paths and errands meet
and whither then? I can't say.

Roads go ever on and on
over rock and under tree,
by caves where never sun has shone,
by streams that never find the sea.
Over snow by winter sown
and through the merry flowers of June.
Over grass and over stone
and under mountains in the moon.

Part 2

Roads go ever on and on
under cloud and under star.
Yet feet that wandering have gone
turn at last to home afar.
Eyes that fire and sword have seen
and horrors in the halls of stone,
look at last on meadows green
and trees they long have known.

The road goes ever on and on
down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the road has gone,
let others follow it, who can.
Let them a journey new begin,
but I at last with weary feet
will turn towards the lighted inn,
my evening rest and sleep to meet.
