  1. The Shadow Man by J.R.R. Tolkien
  2.  
  3. There was a man who dwelt alone
  4. beneath the moon in shadow.
  5. He sat as long as lasting stone,
  6. and yet he had no shadow.
  7. The owls, they perches upon his head
  8. beneath the moon of summer;
  9. They wiped their beaks and thought him dead,
  10. who sat there dumb all summer.
  11.  
  12. There came a lady clad in grey
  13. beneath the moon a-shining.
  14. One moment did she stand and stay
  15. her hair with flowers entwining.
  16. He woke, as had he sprung of stone,
  17. beneath the moon in shadow,
  18. And clasped her fast, both flesh and bone;
  19. and they were clad in shadow.
  20.  
  21. And never more she walked in light,
  22. or over moonlit mountain,
  23. But dwelt within a hill, where night
  24. is lit but with a fountain -
  25. Save once a year when caverns yawn,
  26. and hills are clad in shadow,
  27. They dance together then till dawn
  28. and cast a single shadow.
