Your Books

- Harthad

Your books
hold the imaginative parts of the world
that would die without
your vibrant, pulsing group of fans
You live on
when we shout in praise of your
creative, juice-filled giant chapters

And so
you will live on
in our hearts
in our minds
and we will not
all the minds you sent a spark into
all the hearts you sent racing
and all the eyes that were
lit aflame
in curiosity.

To you, J.R.R. Tolkien.
