An immortal dream
One man cast a lingering spell of awe and wonder
of magical innocence, overcoming evil
of simple courage and conquering fear.
He gave us the legend that will live forever in our hearts.
Three rings the elven-kings under the sky.
Seven for the dwarf-lords in their halls of stone.
Nine for mortal men doomed to die.
One for the dark-lord on his dark throne
in the land of Mordor where the shadows lie.
Come to Middle-Earth a world beyond the furthest reaches of your imagination.
Tolkien triumphed with the perception that a
single dream is more powerful than a thousand realities
