Imram (The Death of Saint Brendan) is a poem written by J.R.R. Tolkien and published in Time and Tide in December 1955.

The title is Irish for "voyage"; Imrama were Celtic tales about Irish explorers who sought the Land of Promise in the Atlantic.

A version of the poem appeared as part of "The Notion Club Papers" within Sauron Defeated; the original version was also provided among the commentaries.[1]
