“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 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.

And Death Shall Have No Dominion”

By Dylan Thomas
And death shall have no dominion.

Dead man naked they shall be one

With the man in the wind and the west moon;

When their bones are picked clean and the clean bones gone,

They shall have stars at elbow and foot;

Though they go mad they shall be sane,

Though they sink through the sea they shall rise again;

Though lovers be lost love shall not;

And death shall have no dominion.
Under the windings of the sea

They lying long shall not die windily;

Twisting on racks when sinews give way,

Strapped to a wheel, yet they shall not break;

Faith in their hands shall snap in two,

And the unicorn evils run them through;

Split all ends up they shan't crack;

And death shall have no dominion.

No more may gulls cry at their ears

Or waves break loud on the seashores;

Where blew a flower may a flower no more

Lift its head to the blows of the rain;

Though they be mad and dead as nails,

Heads of the characters hammer through daisies;

Break in the sun till the sun breaks down,

And death shall have no dominion.

“The Rose of Battle”

By William Butler Yeats


Rose of all Roses, Rose of all the World!

The tall thought-woven sails, that flap unfurled

Above the tide of hours, trouble the air,

And God's bell buoyed to be the water's care;

5 While hushed from fear, or loud with hope, a band

With blown, spray-dabbled hair gather at hand.

Turn if you may from battles never done,

I call, as they go by me one by one,

Danger no refuge holds, and war no peace,

10 For him who hears love sing and never cease,

Beside her clean-swept hearth, her quiet shade:

But gather all for whom no love hath made

A woven silence, or but came to cast

A song into the air, and singing passed

15 To smile on the pale dawn; and gather you

Who have sougft more than is in rain or dew,

Or in the sun and moon, or on the earth,

Or sighs amid the wandering, starry mirth,

Or comes in laughter from the sea's sad lips,

20 And wage God's battles in the long grey ships.

The sad, the lonely, the insatiable,

To these Old Night shall all her mystery tell;

God's bell has claimed them by the little cry

Of their sad hearts, that may not live nor die.


25 Rose of all Roses, Rose of all the World!

You, too, have come where the dim tides are hurled

Upon the wharves of sorrow, and heard ring

The bell that calls us on; the sweet far thing.

Beauty grown sad with its eternity

30 Made you of us, and of the dim grey sea.

Our long ships loose thought-woven sails and wait,

For God has bid them share an equal fate;

And when at last, defeated in His wars,

They have gone down under the same white stars,

35 We shall no longer hear the little cry

Of our sad hearts, that may not live nor die.

“Sailing to Byzantium”

By William Butler Yeats


That is no country for old men. The young

In one another's arms, birds in the trees,

— Those dying generations — at their song,

The salmon-falls, the mackerel-crowded seas,

5Fish, flesh, or fowl, commend all summer long

Whatever is begotten, born, and dies.

Caught in that sensual music all neglect

Monuments of unageing intellect.



An aged man is but a paltry thing,

10A tattered coat upon a stick, unless

Soul clap its hands and sing, and louder sing

For every tatter in its mortal dress,

Nor is there singing school but studying

Monuments of its own magnificence;

15And therefore I have sailed the seas and come

To the holy city of Byzantium.



O sages standing in God's holy fire

As in the gold mosaic of a wall,

Come from the holy fire, perne in a gyre,

20And be the singing-masters of my soul.

Consume my heart away; sick with desire

And fastened to a dying animal

It knows not what it is; and gather me

Into the artifice of eternity.



25Once out of nature I shall never take

My bodily form from any natural thing,

But such a form as Grecian goldsmiths make

Of hammered gold and gold enamelling

To keep a drowsy Emperor awake;

30Or set upon a golden bough to sing

To lords and ladies of Byzantium

Of what is past, or passing, or to come.

“The Triumph of the Machine”

By D.H. Lawrence 
They talk of the triumph of the machine,

but the machine will never triumph.


Out of the thousands and thousands of centuries of man

the unrolling of ferns, white tongues of the acanthus lapping at the sun,

5 for one sad century

machines have triumphed, rolled us hither and thither,

shaking the lark's nest till the eggs have broken.


Shaken the marshes, till the geese have gone

and the wild swans flown away singing the swan-song at us.


10 Hard, hard on the earth the machines are rolling,

but through some hearts they will never roll.


The lark nests in his heart

and the white swan swims in the marshes of his loins,

and through the wide prairies of his breast a young bull herds his cows,

15 lambs frisk among the daisies of his brain.


And at last

all these creatures that cannot die, driven back

into the uttermost corners of the soul,

will send up the wild cry of despair.


20 The thrilling lark in a wild despair will trill down arrows from the sky,

the swan will beat the waters in rage, white rage of an enraged swan,

even the lambs will stretch forth their necks like serpents,

like snakes of hate, against the man in the machine:

even the shaking white poplar will dazzle like splinters of glass against him.


25 And against this inward revolt of the native creatures of the soul

mechanical man, in triumph seated upon the seat of his machine

will be powerless, for no engine can reach into the marshes and depths of a man.


So mechanical man in triumph seated upon the seat of his machine

will be driven mad from within himself, and sightless, and on that day

30 the machines will turn to run into one another

traffic will tangle up in a long-drawn-out crash of collision

and engines will rush at the solid houses, the edifice of our life

will rock in the shock of the mad machine, and the house will come down.


Then, far beyond the ruin, in the far, in the ultimate, remote places

35 the swan will lift up again his flattened, smitten head

and look round, and rise, and on the great vaults of his wings

will sweep round and up to greet the sun with a silky glitter of a new day

and the lark will follow trilling, angerless again,

and the lambs will bite off the heads of the daisies for very friskiness.

40 But over the middle of the earth will be the smoky ruin of iron

the triumph of the machine.


 By D.H. Lawrence
Are you willing to be sponged out, erased, cancelled,

made nothing?

Are you willing to be made nothing?

dipped into oblivion?


If not, you will never really change.


The phoenix renews her youth

only when she is burnt, burnt alive, burnt down

to hot and flocculent ash.

Then the small stirring of a new small bub in the nest

with strands of down like floating ash

shows that she is renewing her youth like the eagle,

immortal bird.

“Troth with the Dead”

 By D.H. Lawrence
The moon is broken in twain, and half a moon

Beyond me lies on the low, still floor of the sky;

The other half of the broken coin of troth

Is buried away in the dark, where the dead all lie.


They buried her half in the grave when they laid her away;

Pushed gently away and hidden in the thick of her hair

Where it gathered towards the plait, on that very last day;

And like a moon unshowing it must still shine there
So half lies on the sky, for a general sign

Of the troth with the dead that we are pledged to keep;

Turning its broken edge to the dark, it shine

Ends like a broken love, that turns to the dark of sleep.


And half lies there in the dark where the dead all lie

Lost and yet still connected; and between the two

Strange beams must travel still, for I feel that I

Am lit beneath my heart with a half-moon, weird and blue.
