(©Longshanks 1990)

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 in
my evening rest and sleep to meet
