The Fellowship of the Ring

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.


J.R.R Tolkien

J.R.R Tolkien is a very famous British author, who wrote several amazing stories. These include: The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, the Silmarillion, and much more. Tolkien was a very good linguist. He made up languages for this series, such as Elvish. There are many other science fiction stories with made up languages, like Star Trek's "Klingon". This was 20 years before "Klingon", so they probably got the idea from him.
