      Carpenter missed it in the chronological checklist of Tolkien's works in
      the back of the first edition of the Biography, but picked it up in the
      1987 edition and later. It's also listed elsewhere, e.g. the Tolkien
      Descriptive Bibliography (1993). A few lines are quoted in the
      "Fastitocalon" entry in the Companion and Guide (vol. 2, pp. 295-7), which
      like Larry's article explores the roots of the poem (both poems with that
      title) in the Physiologus, the Voyage of St Brendan, etc.
