Do not go gentle into that good night
Old age should burn and rave at close of day
Rage against the dying of the light
Though wise men at their end know dark is right
They do not go gentle into that good night

Good men
They cry how bright the last wave is
Their failed deed might have danced in a green bag
Rage against the dying of the light
Wild men who caught and sang the song in flight
And learnt, too late, thy grieved it on it's way
Do not go gentle into that goodnight

Gravemen, near death, who see like blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteor
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 goodnight
Rage against the dying of he light

Cheers.

Very nice poem friend and very heartfelt, it is a little heartbreaking as you read but it is a nice writing and see how you express yourself with your words, thanks for sharing.

Thank you for your thoughtful comments always. I'm grateful.

Dylan Marlais Thomas, born October 27, 1914, in South Wales, was the archetypal Romantic poet of the popular American imagination. Dylan is the actual author of above poem. With respect, why not write original poetry @gingerup?

I'm sorry. I have always written my own poem. I just love this one and decided to infuse it.
