Poetry Month, right?

O! Wanderers in the shadowed land
Despair not! For though dark they stand,
All woods there be must end at last,
And see the open sun go past:
The setting sun, the rising sun,
The day's end, or the day begun.
For east or west all woods must fail.

--J.R.R. Tolkien
The Fellowship of the Ring

If anyone has the book at hand, this sounds like it's missing a line or so (I found it online), but I might be just misremembering how it sounds.
