Not all those who wander are lost

I saw someone today with a "not all those who wander are lost" T-shirt and felt compelled to go and look up this poem from J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. A bit nerdy of me, yes, but it's a good poem.

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.
