Pipe Two poems by Tolkien found in 1936 school magazine

There's an interesting article by Alison Flood in the UK newspaper The Guardian, which says that 2 poems by Tolkien were found in the 1936 Annual of Our Lady's School, Abingdon, Oxfordshire:

They were found when Wayne Hammond contacted the school's headteacher, Stephen Oliver, after having found a note by Tolkien referring to the 2 poems.

The poems are 'Noel', about Christmas, and 'The Shadow Man', an early version of the poem published as 'Shadow-Bride' in The Adventures of Tom Bombadil (1962).

This find took place a few years ago, and was mentioned online here:


But the article in The Guardian gives the full texts of the 2 poems, if people would like to take a look.
