The Road Goes Ever On

The Road goes ever on and on,
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with weary feet
Until it joins some larger way,
Where many Paths and errands meet
And wither then? I cannot say.

Still round the corner there may be
A new road or a secret gate.
And though I oft have passed them by,
A time will come at last when I
Shall take the hidden paths that run
West of the Moon, East of the Sun.

— J.R.R. Tolkein
