About this fanlisting

This fanlisting is for the poem, 'Bilbo's Last Song' by J.R.R. Tolkien. These haunting verses speak of Bilbo's final journey from Middle-earth, and form a kind of epilogue to The Lord of the Rings. For more information about the poem itself, see under info.

I first came across the poem through its inclusion in the BBC Radio Dramatisation of The Lord of the Rings. I was given the soundtrack, and fell in love with the musical setting by Stephen Oliver. It is both melancholy and uplifting like the poem itself, with its themes of saying goodbye to friends, but also looking forward to rest and a final homecoming.
