Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night / Dylan Thomas

Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night

Dylan Thomas (1947)


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.
