Poem In October Analysis

Author: poem of Dylan Thomas Type: poem Views: 12

     It was my thirtieth year to heaven

Woke to my hearing from harbour and neighbour wood

     And the mussel pooled and the heron

               Priested shore

          The morning beckon

With water praying and call of seagull and rook

And the knock of sailing boats on the net webbed wall

          Myself to set foot

               That second

     In the still sleeping town and set forth.

     My birthday began with the water-

Birds and the birds of the winged trees flying my name

     Above the farms and the white horses

               And I rose

          In rainy autumn

And walked abroad in a shower of all my days.

High tide and the heron dived when I took the road

          Over the border

               And the gates

     Of the town closed as the town awoke.

     A springful of larks in a rolling

Cloud and the roadside bushes brimming with whistling

     Blackbirds and the sun of October


          On the hill's shoulder,

Here were fond climates and sweet singers suddenly

Come in the morning where I wandered and listened

          To the rain wringing

               Wind blow cold

     In the wood faraway under me.

     Pale rain over the dwindling harbour

And over the sea wet church the size of a snail

     With its horns through mist and the castle

               Brown as owls

          But all the gardens

Of spring and summer were blooming in the tall tales

Beyond the border and under the lark full cloud.

          There could I marvel

               My birthday

     Away but the weather turned around.

     It turned away from the blithe country

And down the other air and the blue altered sky

     Streamed again a wonder of summer

               With apples

          Pears and red currants

And I saw in the turning so clearly a child's

Forgotten mornings when he walked with his mother

          Through the parables

               Of sun light

     And the legends of the green chapels

     And the twice told fields of infancy

That his tears burned my cheeks and his heart moved in mine.

     These were the woods the river and sea

               Where a boy

          In the listening

Summertime of the dead whispered the truth of his joy

To the trees and the stones and the fish in the tide.

          And the mystery

               Sang alive

     Still in the water and singingbirds.

     And there could I marvel my birthday

Away but the weather turned around. And the true

     Joy of the long dead child sang burning

               In the sun.

          It was my thirtieth

Year to heaven stood there then in the summer noon

Though the town below lay leaved with October blood.

          O may my heart's truth

               Still be sung

     On this high hill in a year's turning.
