"Don't be too harsh to these poems until they're typed. I always think typescript lends some sort of certainty: at least, if the things are bad then, they appear to be bad with conviction."

If you may ask, to this day on top of affiliation.

I don't understand anyone without imagination.

I don't understand anyone hating lovely creation.

Crushing Poetry without the slightest information.

As so many genuine thoughts of British poets,

Dylan Thomas is the master of sweet confusion, 

I can't complain since I'm an admire &-tone-deaf

This poem is often recited at the Canadian Parliament Hill when some politicians dies...

 

Do not go gentle into that good night.

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.

No poem is bad enough to be censored by anyone.....

Nothing is incomprehensible even if you don't say it outloud!

frog OH DEAR...

Fine peoplekind's gesture crying how bright

Their weak feats might have danced in a green bay,

Temper, anger , fury for the dying of the light.

Why poetry?

Well since it's the essence of language...

Words driven by sounds without anguish!
