Poetry Friday - Just a Few Lines from Dylan Thomas
And fire green as grass.
And nightly under the simple stars
As I rode to sleep the owls were bearing the farm away,
All the moon long I heard, blessed among stables, the nightjars
Flying with the ricks, and the horses
Flashing into the dark."
Those lines are from Dylan Thomas's's FERN HILL, one of the most beautiful poems ever written in the English language. Every time I read it, I want to pack my bags and head for Wales. Click here to read the whole poem.
POETRY FRIDAY this week is being hosted over at the TeachingBooks.net forum. Head over to find the links!
