Two Years of Muffled Solitude

Sunday, April 19, 2009

Muffled Solitude turned two today. To celebrate, here's a poem by Dylan Thomas:

In My Craft or Sullen Art

In my craft or sullen art
Exercised in the still night
When only the moon rages
And the lovers lie abed
With all their griefs in their arms,
I labour by singing light
Not for ambition or bread
Or the strut and trade of charms
On the ivory stages
But for the common wages
Of their most secret heart.
Not for the proud man apart
From the raging moon I write
On these spindrift pages
Not for the towering dead
With their nightingales and psalms
But for the lovers, their arms
Round the griefs of the ages,
Who pay no praise or wages
Nor heed my craft or art.

Hi Agnes. The poem somehow represented what I have been--or have tried--doing for the past two years. :)

Amelia, the one great think about blogging is I get to make friends online, like you and all the others. I'm so, so glad to have you guys in life. :)

Jo, it was my pleasure.

This blog wouldn't be itself right now without you guys. Thank you.
