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.

    When the one person who reads the poem fails to realize that it's written in iambic pentameter and is reading it completely wrong... (Report) Reply

    I love this poem, as it is an allegory telling us to keep holding on to life, as it is a gift from God. At our end we know dark is right, or that we will die sooner or later, but as life is important, we should try to keep it. Willpower, when aided by the Lord God, is one of the strongest things on our Earth, helping many people pull through the illnesses and injuries that are inevitable on earth. (Report) Reply
