Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night
Dylan Thomas Lyrics

Do not go gentle into that good night
Old age should burn and rage 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
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
Rage, rage against the dying of the light
And you, my father, there on the 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

I just passed my 90th birthday and I'm sure as hell not going gentle in that good night. When I'm feeling sorry for myself, I recite the first part and I, indeed, rage against the dying of the light. Those words put fire in my belly to face another day with fresh resolve.


@John Fisher Hoping you stay with us for many years to come sir!

Also sheesh 2021 is starting off... “Strong” I suppose is a word for it... Here’s to hoping it at least only gets better from here!

I'm surprised and flattered by so many of you still looking in on my posts. It occurred to me you might be interested in some creative writing activities I use to keep my senior brain from drifting into senility. I write for a closed Facebook site "As Time Goes By" which you can join for free. Here you can read many of the television script treatments I create for our members. Also, check out Amazon Kindle e-books and search for the title "Your Turn To Find The Hammer" an e-book about my late wife and our humourous adventures building a dream house in the 1950s. Stay safe and well, and be kind to each other,

Beleive In you
