Let a bleak paleness chalk the door,
So all within be livelier than before.”

Under the conceiving moon, on the high chalk hill,
And there this night I walk in the white giants thigh
Where barrren as boulders women lie longing still
To labour and love though they lay down long ago.”
—Dylan Thomas (19141953)
