i first read this poem when i was in 4th grade and i have loved it ever since. in case you are not familiar with dylan thomas, here is a bit of background. he was a welsh poet who also has written some short stories. he was believed to have drank himself to death. he is quoted as saying, “an alcoholic is someone you don’t like who drinks as much as you do.” a saucy kinda fellow and my kinda guy. i will ever embrace the day is my answer to this great piece.
DO NOT GO GENTLE INTO THAT GOOD NIGHT
