18 Poems1934The force that through the green fuse drives the flower

Drives my green age; that blasts the roots of trees

Is my destroyer.

And I am dumb to tell the crooked rose

My youth is bent by the same wintry fever.The force that drives the water through the rocks

Drives my red blood; that dries the mouthing streams

Turns mine to wax.

And I am dumb to mouth unto my veins

How at the mountain spring the same mouth sucks.The hand that whirls the water in the pool

Stirs the quicksand; that ropes the blowing wind

Hauls my shroud sail.

And I am dumb to tell the hanging man

How of my clay is made the hangman's lime.The lips of time leech to the fountain head;

Love drips and gathers, but the fallen blood

Shall calm her sores.

And I am dumb to tell a weather's wind

How time has ticked a heaven round the stars.And I am dumb to tell the lover's tomb

How at my sheet goes the same crooked worm.

.: critique :.

Jesus this is such an awesome thing. It's not something you can grasp with just a quick once over. The mechanics are mind boggeling. To me the way Thomas repeats the partial line "And I am dumb" is the clencher. That line kind of ties the whole poem together as far asd styke goes. Theres also some subtle rhymes in there. I dunno, I still think I have yet to grasp this poems mechanics in their entirety. It truely is a complex little machine.

The force that through the green fuse drives the flower
Drives my green age; that blasts the roots of trees
Is my destroyer.
And I am dumb to tell the crooked rose


The above is the first stanza and the form used throughout the poem. The piece adheres strictly to these guidelines until the end where it goes on to accentuate the "I am dumb" Line, Dylan Thomas must have thought that to be the clencher of the piece as well.

I am blown away with the complexity.
