Clown In The Moon Poem by Dylan Thomas

Clown In The Moon

Rating: 3.6


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.

I think, that if I touched the earth,
It would crumble;
It is so sad and beautiful,
So tremulously like a dream.

Clown in The Moon This Dylan's poem Has the beauty Of the water falls You want to catch each drop brfore it falls- You want to reach each word As, it belongs to you; I 'd like to say deeper than that It is you what you sense And... yours.

This may be my favorite poem of all time. It makes no reference to a clown or a moon. And it has such a dramatic feeling in only 8 lines. Astonishing.

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. Great imagination. tony

Dylan Thomas would turn in his grave upon hearing this terrible rendition. It starts very, very, very badly then quickly fades. So truly diabolical.

The voice over is anachronistic. Such a beautiful poem ruined and read by an uninitiated reader.

A poem that is short and sweet by Dylan's poetry standards, but still delivers a tragic yet beautifully expressed message to every reader. Diolch yn fawr Dylan.
