Hello again one and all. We hope you’ve had a good week, and that the weather has been equally as nice for you as it has been for us.
Today, to wind down the week, we decided to go with this brilliant reading by Tom O’Bedlam of “And Death Shall Have No Dominion”, one of Thomas’s finest, darkest takes on mortality, religion, the forces of nature and the Human experience. Written around the middle of Thomas’s short life, the title pertaining to St Paul’s Epistle to The Romans (6:9), this is Thomas at his finest.
Bearing in mind that it is also a poem at it’s core about immortality, there is something fitting that this poem should still be making an impact and being analysed and recited nearly a century after it’s writing, and half a century after Thomas’s death. It can be said that true immortality comes from adding…

Nor a feeling it can tell, nor a look I could smell.
Nor a touch I can see, nor a music I could be.
Nor a single, one poem, we’re all poets, carpe diem..
Il mio canto non avra’ stupito, ma suscitato nel udito.
Nel profondo mar’ voluto andare, senza fiato respirare.
Un enigma sta’ canzone, la risolve un barbone.
La sua vita mal che vada, vasto mondo la sua casa.
Per amore fu’ sperduto, oltre lei nul’ conosciuto.
I thought: the world is so mixed today, but there are no bilingual poems. So I wrote one. Hope at least few people will like it. Ciao 🙂
I walk through the garden,
On this warm summer’s day,
To smell the flowers,
That grandma raised.
In the middle,
Of this garden of gold,
Stood this one,
Single red stem rose,
The rose means so many things,
From the ones you receive on your wedding day,
To the one you get on Valentine’s Day,
But this single rose standing here today,
Represents the love grandma gave.
From the love she gave,
When she planted it that day,
To the love she gave us,
Each and every day,
So when you pass this garden of gold,
Remember the love that this rose holds.

No sounds uttered
Growing up in Eastwood
With mining all around
Was difficult for Lawrence
For his health was not sound
He was bullied at school
He failed to join in games
He preferred the company of girls
For they did not call him names
His father expected him to be a miner
But Lawrence was playing it cool
First in Eastwood to win a scholarship
He went to the Nottingham High School
Alas he didn’t distinguish himself
The other boys were a class apart
He left school in the summer of 1901
Started work in factory as a clerk
In 1904 Lawrence did very well
In the Kings scholarship examination
His mother wanted him to be a teacher
Which he did through his determination?
Lawrence went on to be asuccessful author
This brought success into his life
Poetry was also one of his passions
But controversy through his work was rife
But his work may have been controversial
His written work was good
As a great poet and a writer
Who live in his home in Eastwood?
