Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night - Poem by Dylan Thomas

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.

    My father suffered great pain and agony as a survivor of a horrible automobile accident. He fought death bravely until his final breath. I was a 13-year old troubled youth in 1967, and I prayed to Almighty God that my father would survive his severe injuries. My prayer for my father was please, do not go gentle into that good night, rage, rage against the dying of the light! He fought the good fight but God took him away from me. I still love this fabulous villanelle by Dylan Thomas. It has comforted me and has helped me to accept the loss of my hero and best friend, my father, Morris Joseph Foret (1927-1967) . Rest in Peace, my beloved father, your loving son. (Report) Reply
