On A Wedding Anniversary - Poem by Dylan Thomas

The sky is torn across
This ragged anniversary of two
Who moved for three years in tune
Down the long walks of their vows.

Now their love lies a loss
And Love and his patients roar on a chain;
From every tune or crater
Carrying cloud, Death strikes their house.

Too late in the wrong rain
They come together whom their love parted:
The windows pour into their heart
And the doors burn in their brain.

    The windows pour into their heart
    And the doors burn in their brain.

    I can see what your saying... Elizabeth`s storry is amazing... on sunday I got a brand new Honda from

    earning $9023 this last four weeks and even more than 10-k this past month. with-out any doubt it's the most

    financially rewarding I've ever had. I started this 8-months ago and pretty much straight away was bringing

    The windows pour into their heart

    Good use of quatrain for stylistic effects.
