Among Those Killed In The Dawn Raid Was A Man Aged A Hundred Poem by Dylan Thomas

Among Those Killed In The Dawn Raid Was A Man Aged A Hundred

Rating: 3.0

When the morning was waking over the war
He put on his clothes and stepped out and he died,
The locks yawned loose and a blast blew them wide,
He dropped where he loved on the burst pavement stone
And the funeral grains of the slaughtered floor.
Tell his street on its back he stopped a sun
And the craters of his eyes grew springshots and fire
When all the keys shot from the locks, and rang.
Dig no more for the chains of his grey-haired heart.
The heavenly ambulance drawn by a wound
Assembling waits for the spade's ring on the cage.
O keep his bones away from the common cart,
The morning is flying on the wings of his age
And a hundred storks perch on the sun's right hand.

A powerful poem. No winner in war.

He drowns his reader in a rampaging flood of words but words so skillfully strung together to create a building emotion and through the emotion understanding of the reason the poet wrote this.
