Contents: Author's prologue --
I see the boys of summer --
When once the twilight locks no longer --
A process in the weather of the heart --
Before I knocked --
The force that through the green fuse drives the flower --
My hero bares his nerves --
Where once the waters of your face --
If I were tickled by the rub of love --
Our eunuch dreams --
Especially when the October wind --
When, like a running grave --
From love's first fever to her plague --
In the beginning --
Light breaks where no sun shines --
I followed sleep --
I dreamed my genesis --
My world is pyramid --
All all and all the dry worlds lever --
I, in my intricate image --
This bread I break --
Incarnate devil --
To-day, this insect --
The seed-at-zero --
Shall gods be said to thump the clouds --
Here in this spring --
Do you not father me --
Out of the sighs --
Hold hard, these ancient minutes in the cuckoo's mouth --
Was there a time --
Now --
Why east wind chills --
A grief ago --
How soon the servant sun --
Ears in the turrets hear --
Foster the light --
The hand that signed the paper --
Should lanterns shine --
I have longed to move away --
Find meat on bones --
Grief thief of time --
And death shall have no dominion --
Then was my neophyte --
Altarwise by owl-light --
Because the pleasure-bird whistles --
I make this in a warring absence --
When all my five and country senses see --
We lying by seasand --
It is the sinners' dust-tongued bell --
O make me a mask --
The spire cranes --
After the funeral --
Once it was the colour of saying --
Not from this anger --
How shall my animal --
The tombstone told when she died --
On no work of words --
A saint about to fall --
'If my head hurt a hair's foot' --
Twenty-four years --
The conversation of prayer --
A refusal to mourn the death, by fire, of a child in London --
Poem in October --
This side of the truth --
To others than you --
Love in the asylum --
Unluckily for a death --
The hunchback in the park --
Into her lying down head --
Do not go gentle into that good night --
Deaths and entrances --
A winter's tale --
On a wedding anniversary --
There was a saviour --
On the marriage of a virgin --
In my craft or sullen art --
Ceremony after a fire raid --
Once below a time --
When I woke --
Dawn raid --
Lie still, sleep becalmed --
Vision and prayer --
Balled of the long-legged bait --
Holy spring --
Fern hill --
In country sleep --
Over Sir John's hill --
Poem on his birthday --
Lament --
In the white giant's thigh.
Responsibility: [Dylan Thomas].
