All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by frost.
From ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken:
The crownless again shall be king.
– J. R. R. Tolkien, from The Lord of the Rings
The large “elvish” letters tell the nine names of Aragorn: Estel, Strider, Wingfoot, Longshanks, Aragorn, Renewer, Thorongil, Elfstone, and Elessar Telcontar.
