Tales and Songs of Bimble Bay

Tales and Song of Bimble Bay are a series of poems written by J.R.R. Tolkien. Although Humphrey Carpenter wrote that they were written in 1922,[1] Christina Scull and Wayne G. Hammond place the time of composition as c. 1928.[2] The poems tell stories about an imaginary English coastal town and harbour, Bimble Bay.
