Poem: Do not go gentle into that good night
of decay, blight, and disease;
rage, rage against the dying of the light please!
With all of your might
until I am at ease!?

Do not go gentle into that good night
of solemn, irrevocable sleep;
rage, rage against the calling of the Deep!
Come to me and to the light
or else I will weep!?

Do not go gentle into that good night
of the ebb of your power;
rage, rage against the withering of the flower!
Deny eternal rest its right
to take you before the hour!

Do not go gentle into that good night
of the setting of your sun;
rage, rage against the death that's almost won!
Tho' the end's within sight,
fight, fight till your light's all done!...
