Poem for Rosalind Ramage

The poem for Rosalind Ramage refers to an unpublished poem by J.R.R. Tolkien. The poem was "written for an American girl named Rosalind Ramage who had written Tolkien a fan letter in October 1964". Tolkien submitted the poem, together with "The Dragon's Visit" and "Once upon a Time", for publication in Winter's Tales for Children 1. Due to lack of space, only the two latter poems were included in the children's anthology.[1]
