Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night by 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 ,
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.

  3. You seem to have "dumped" this entire assignment on this board without giving any thought to it. We do not DO homework. We teachers HELP students understand so they can become independent learners.

    First, I have no idea who the "auditor" of this poem is -- or even if it has one. However, you've clearly stated that it's "by Dylan Thomas."
