make peace

make-peace

make peace with
the coming dusk
and wither not
in the night

This is my response to MPSC 2.2.  Each Saturday sees a new prompt for Magnetic Poetry Challenge from Elusive Trope at Specks and Fragments, and the challenge details can be found here.  If you want to try magnetic poetry, you can do it online, here.

  1. Dylan Thomas, 1914 – 1953

    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.

    (yeah, it’s a villanelle, ain’t it)
