Before I Knocked Comments

Rating: 3.0

Before I knocked and flesh let enter,
With liquid hands tapped on the womb,
I who was as shapeless as the water
That shaped the Jordan near my home

Dylan Thomas always young and rebel.Dylan Thomas some kind of modern Rimbaud, bohemian and loner as if he was possesed by the POET cliché.And this is a good example of his anxious and almost hopeless poetry. It must be hard to charge that talent on his back.

Amazing poem - especially considering Thomas was a teenager when he wrote it. Already the genius was finding its way to the page! He was an astounding man who died too young - but then he always thought he would. Who else can throw words together with such effect? Not many. A true celtic legend.
