To the Professor!

Grey Havens YA

On this day, January 3rd, 1892, J.R.R. Tolkien was born. We here at Grey Havens and Grey Havens YA would like to wish the Professor a very happy birthday!

Grey Havens YA certainly wouldn’t exist without Professor Tolkien, and I know my own personal life would be far darker without the light that he shared. Please join us in honoring the Professor by sharing what he means to you below in the comments!

Here is one of Co-Director Robyn’s favorite poems by Tolkien. You can read more about her journey with Tolkien here. These verses are sung by Samwise Gamgee in The Return of the King:

In western lands beneath the Sun
the flowers may rise in Spring,
the trees may bud, the waters run,
the merry finches sing.
Or there maybe ’tis cloudless night
and swaying beeches bear
the Elven-stars as jewels white
amid their branching hair.
