Year still after year flows
down the Seven Rivers;
cloud passes, sunlight glows,
reed and willow quivers
at morn and eve, but never more
westward ships waded
in mortal waters as before,
and their song has faded.
The preceding is the thirteenth and final stanza of Tolkien's poem 'The Last Ship' found on page 64, the final page of 'The Adventures of Tom Bombadil and other verses from
'The Red Book', with illustrations by Pauline Baynes. This being the final section of 'The Tolkien Reader'.
'The Adventures... ' are made up of sixteen poems, only two of which concern Tom Bombadil, and most are delightful. My favorites are 'The Stone Troll' and the two about 'The Man in the Moon': one where he 'Stayed Up Too Late' and the other where he 'Came Down Too Soon'.
If anyone wants a complete list of those poems you have but to ask. See my 13 January 2002 comment in the 'Other Tolkien Books' thread, where I listed the titles of the other sections of 'The Tolkien Reader', whose pages of my 1970 edition paperback are now yellow with age, but remain within their binding.
