Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

A Child's Christmas In Wales
One Christmas was so much like another, in those years around the sea-town corner now and out of all sound except the distant speaking of the voices I sometimes hear a moment before sleep, that I can never remember whether it snowed for six days and six nights when I was twelve or whether it snowed for twelve days and twelve nights when I was six.

All the Christmases roll down toward the two-tongued sea, like a cold and headlong moon bundling down the sky that was our street; and they stop at the rim of the ice-edged fish-freezing waves, and I plunge my hands in the snow and bring out whatever I can find. In goes my hand into that wool-white bell-tongued ball of holidays resting at the rim of the carol-singing sea, and out come Mrs. Prothero and the firemen.

Now as I was young and easy under the apple boughs
About the lilting house and happy as the grass was green,
The night above the dingle starry,
Time let me hail and climb

Clown In The Moon
My tears are like the quiet drift
Of petals from some magic rose;
And all my grief flows from the rift
Of unremembered skies and snows.

Dylan Thomas whose rank is #31 on top 500 poets today on 20 November 2020, was an amazing and mystical poet of philosophy and perception. He has judged life from inner deepness and understood birth and death well. We love to read his poems. He lives in hearts of many even today.

Dylan Thomas writes so well about many subjects, none more so than childhood and death. No wonder Bob Dylan found his stage name in the Welsh poet.

All of his poems can have many different meanings, and it is cool to think that everyone could have a different perspective on what his poems are like.

I have been looking and reading this poem for a number of years. I am now 74 and am aware of mortality. We are probably the only species that are aware of our own demise. At least for me it is a difficult realization to absorb. Dylan’s poem seem to me to express the frustration of that reality. We behave, love go through life as if its forever. So it ain’t.
