And Death Shall Have No Dominion

Rating: 3.9
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.

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.

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.

" And death shall have no dominion. Under the windings of the sea" ....This poem is very deeply philosophical. Soul is just like star and this reflects the inner feeling and divinity. This poem is excellently penned.

Death shall have no dominion because no one comes out life alive....so death is terminally irrelevant. A disassemblage of sinew and fibre back to nature.

Dylan Thomas simply on top of his poetry game. Genius and poetry for eternity and a legacy for all humankind. Sleep well Dylan. Nos da.

Thomas refers to....... the west moon and Shelley to..... the west wind. How sad they died so young.
