« on: March 05, 2004, 07:03:28 pm »
Anyone remember Titel and Poet of a poem about not giving in to death and determinism with the repetitive phrase "rage against the dying of the light"
....I heard it in school when I was like 16-17, but was drunk like twice a week

If you do you can send text to densortedragen@hotmail.com

Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night
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 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.
just like in a dream
you'll open your mouth to scream
and you won't make a sound

you can't believe your eyes
you can't believe your ears
you can't believe your friends
you can't believe you're here

I read this in one of my female moments and became confused - does this mean that you want all the guys to think you are gay?

Q: You wrote on the back of one album, "I accept chaos but does chaos accept me."

A: Chaos is a friend of mine. It's like I accept him, does he accept me.

Q: Do you see the world as chaos?

A: Truth is chaos. Maybe beauty is chaos.

Q: Poets like Eliot and Yeats--

A: I haven't read Yeats.

Q: they saw the world as chaos, accepted it as chaos and attempted to bring order from it. Are you trying to do that?

A: No. It exists and that's all there is to it. It's been here longer than I have. What can I do about it? I don't know what the songs I write are. That's all I do is write songs, right? Write. I collect things too.

Wow! Thanks.
I've long felt that Dylan is a true prophet of Eris.
