Archives For Gollum

Alive without breath,
As cold as death;
Never thirsty, ever drinking,
All in mail never clinking.

J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

An eye in a blue face
Saw an eye in a green face.
‘That eye is like to this eye’
Said the first eye,
‘But in low place
Not in high place.’

Bilbo Baggins, The Hobbit

This thing all things devours:
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats high mountain down.

Gollum, The Hobbit

It cannot be seen, cannot be felt,
Cannot be heard, cannot be smelt.
It lies behind stars and under hills,
And empty holes it fills.
It comes first and follows after,
Ends life, kills laughter.

Gollum, The Hobbit
