and death shall have no dominion

By is nothing sacred? on March 19, 2016 9:49 pm

I've been sick since last sunday - possibly broncitis so I couldn't try to sing this week.  I figured out how to plug in a little midi keyboard & played around with garage band a bit.  I started 3 or 4 other songs & this seemed to be the song that wanted to be born this week.  I think it's sort of a reflection of my brain after a week not really being able to get out of bed - I'm ready to move!

"And death shall have no dominion.
Dead man naked they shall be one
With the man in the wind and the west moon;
When their bones are picked clean and the clean bones gone,
They shall have stars at elbow and foot;
Though they go mad they shall be sane,
Though they sink through the sea they shall rise again;
Though lovers be lost love shall not;
And death shall have no dominion.

And death shall have no dominion.
Under the windings of the sea
They lying long shall not die windily;
Twisting on racks when sinews give way,
Strapped to a wheel, yet they shall not break;
Faith in their hands shall snap in two,
And the unicorn evils run them through;
Split all ends up they shan't crack;
And death shall have no dominion.

And death shall have no dominion.
No more may gulls cry at their ears
Or waves break loud on the seashores;
Where blew a flower may a flower no more
Lift its head to the blows of the rain;
Though they be mad and dead as nails,
Heads of the characters hammer through daisies;
Break in the sun till the sun breaks down,
And death shall have no dominion."  - dylan thomas
