So comes snow after fire,
and even dragons have their ending!
~ J. R. R. Tolkien (January 3, 1892 – September 2, 1973)
J.R.R. Tolkien Day
Walking through the forest in the snow
Only the sound of your own footsteps breaks the silence.
Alone in the world
One can believe in dragons again.
In the trees a grey squirrel eats nuts
Beside you a blue jay screeches and lands
Across the pond a bald eagle soars
Snow falls from the trees
~ Deborah Porte
Come, come, my conservative friend,
wipe the dew off your spectacles,
and see that the world is moving.
~ Elizabeth Cady Stanton (November 12, 1815 – October 26, 1902)
