That Good Night

The title of the poem shared below is taken from a line from Dylan Thomas’ poem, Do not go gentle into that goodnight.

Here is Thomas’ first stanza.

“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.”

 That Good Night

Even the young fairy,
its silver wings,
darting too quickly,

weaving flight
between the thin branches
where the green buds

pop into life,
is ruined by the spider’s snare,
the thin thread,

as treacherous as honey,
where moonlight trickles
on dark nights,

and the hum of young wings,
that struggle and spirit, fades,
a sleep that greets no dawn.
