Dylan Thomas in Exile

dylanthomasDylan,

the second wave

The wave floods

The flood recedes

The tide returns

seethe in anger
darkest season
the poet is silenced

they will run him from his home

they will silence his intimate words,
his earthly voice & breath

they will no longer hear
his ‘foreign’ words

the others will press to listen

To read the rest of the poem, please visit Dylan Thomas in Exile
