Elegy

May 4, 2010

My thanks go to Hannah Watson for sending this beautiful reading of a poem by Dylan Thomas. Hannah writes:

“The poem pairs with the more famous Do not go gentle into that good night, both written for the poet’s dying father, though here the feeling of revolt seems to come full circle: ‘Go calm to your crucifixed hill…’ By comparison with much of Thomas’ densely worded poetry, this is beautifully simple, scarce even, yet retaining something of the poet’s playfulness with idioms: ‘all the days of his death’, for instance, or ‘Let him find no rest…’”

      Hi Anton, just noticed your message – thanks! I’d be very happy to. What’s the poem and what’s it for?
