And Death Shall Have No Dominion - Poem by Dylan Thomas

And death shall have no dominion.
Dead man naked they shall be one
With the man in the wind and the west moon;
When their bones are picked clean and the clean bones gone,
They shall have stars at elbow and foot;
Though they go mad they shall be sane,
Though they sink through the sea they shall rise again;
Though lovers be lost love shall not;
And death shall have no dominion.

And death shall have no dominion.
Under the windings of the sea
They lying long shall not die windily;
Twisting on racks when sinews give way,
Strapped to a wheel, yet they shall not break;
Faith in their hands shall snap in two,
And the unicorn evils run them through;
Split all ends up they shan't crack;
And death shall have no dominion.

And death shall have no dominion.
No more may gulls cry at their ears
Or waves break loud on the seashores;
Where blew a flower may a flower no more
Lift its head to the blows of the rain;
Though they be mad and dead as nails,
Heads of the characters hammer through daisies;
Break in the sun till the sun breaks down,
And death shall have no dominion.

    Maybe understanding comes from having somebody who was close to us die. I don't know.
    Maybe the only way to truly understand it comes at a cost that is too high.
    Most of us will pay that price before we are old enough to face death.
    All I know is that, whenever I read this now, it makes perfect sense.
    And as vivid as the images that are in it might be, maybe it's one of the few ways that we can really understand that death has no cominion. (Report) Reply
