Good Night ( a golden shovel)

Exercise of the golden shovel done during Write by the Lake poetry class June 2016.


Do Not Go Gentle into that Good Night
Dylan Thomas



Though I try this and I try that, and get so tired from striving, no matter what I DO

Being meek or being bold, being insightful and so caring, it turns out to be NOT

The necessary element that’s missing, that mysterious component that will help me GO

To the next level to prove that I am submissive, sweet and GENTLE

To indicate that I’m exactly what you need.  Instead what I run INTO

Is a brick wall, an iron curtain and completely the opposite of THAT

Which will make you smile and say that I am GOOD.

To hell with date NIGHT.
