Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night


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.

    Villanelles are a pain to write well. Nevertheless, the master tackles it and creates what must surely be among the very best of poems ever written. Brilliant and flawless! (Report) Reply

    This is one of my all time favorites!
    Superbly written, ... no repetitions in rhyming ends 'ight' and 'ay'...Great alteration of last lines of stanza that are brought together in the final one.
    Powerfully-charged sustained emotion throughout...
    This one is truly a classic!

    Rage & roar, rage & roar,
    The flesh will rot & the spirt soar.
    No more will heart spent tears fall,
    At grave side when the trump does call. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
