Fifty New Poems for Children is a book which includes J.R.R. Tolkien's poem "Goblin Feet".

Although the book does not give a publication date, 1922 can be assumed[1]. It contains pieces published in 1922 and a copy with a January 1923 dated inscription has been seen. The British Library catalogues also list it as 1922, and the book was advertised in the Asiatic Review of April 1922[2].

Reprinted in 1924 & 1929.

American editions have been seen published by Bretano’s (undated) and Appleton & Co. (1924).
