Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night

Rating: 4.4
Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on that sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

From birth till old age we should rage rage against the dying of the light. I can taste the consonants in the poem Dylan used this so craftily for rhyme and remembrance.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right, When the time comes I should hope to rage as Dylan Thomas urges. He was such a descriptive writer it is easy to commend his work. It might be too long to post here but Under Milkwood is a must for any lover of poetry.

'And you, my father, there on that sad height, Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.' how best can you translate this? Do 'fierce tears ' stand for regrets the father had or the lifetime experience?
