Dylan Marlais Thomas was a Welsh poet and writer who wrote exclusively in English. In addition to poetry, he wrote short stories and scripts for film and radio, which he often performed himself. His public readings, particularly in America, won him great acclaim; his sonorous voice with a subtle Welsh lilt became almost as famous as his works.

Trail with daisies and barley
Down the rivers of the windfall light.

And as I was green and carefree, famous among the barns

In the sun that is young once only,
