Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night by 


Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night

BY DYLAN THOMAS

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

This is actually upside down….

  • Hi John…Photo is actually upside down…otherwise straight from camera…I thought it looked more poetic from this angle.
    Thanks for your sweet words…Gena

    Open to many different interpretations because accompanied by that well-known and powerful poem. I will just reveal that I think the colours and the wild movement of the grasses are fantastic!
