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.
– Dylan Thomas

What a piece of work is a man, How noble in reason, how infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and admirable, in action how like an Angel!

In apprehension how like a god, the beauty of the world, the paragon of animals. and yet to me, what is this quintessence of dust?

Man delights not me; no, nor woman neither; though by your smiling you seeme to say so
– Shakespeare, The Tragedy of Hamlet (Act II, Scene II)

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
– W.B. Yeats, Aedh Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven

You shall no longer take things at second or third hand, nor look through the eyes of the dead, nor feed on the spectres in books,

You shall not look through my eyes either, nor take things from me,

You shall listen to all sides and filter them from yourself.
– Walt Whitman, Song of myself, 1892

Stone walls do not a prison make,
Nor iron bars a cage:
Minds innocent and quiet take
That for an hermitage.
If I have freedom in my love,
And in my soul am free,
Angels alone, that soar above,
Enjoy such liberty.
– Richard Lovelace, To Althea, from Prison

Though much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are,
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
– Alfred Lord Tennyson, Ulysses

Content warning: re: What is everyone's favorite poet & poem by them? Mine is "I want you to know one thing" by Pablo Neruda. Though it was very hard to narrow poets and poetry down to a single favorite. ("see more" for whole poem).

Après la pluie (2)


Dans le jardin d'eau
Visité au soir
Entre deux averses
Monte des aigrettes
Au jaune passé
D'un soleil absent
Le parfum subtil
De l'été naissant
Tendre chèvrefeuille
