Apus de soare în New Jersey / Sunset Poem

“Every morning when I wake,
Dear Lord, a little prayer I make,
O please do keep Thy lovely eye
On all poor creatures born to die.”

“And every evening at sun-down
I ask a blessing on the town,
For whether we last the night or no
I’m sure is always touch-and-go.”

"We are not wholly bad or good
Who live our lives under Milk Wood,
And Thou, I know, wilt be the first
To see our best side, not our worst.”

“O let us see another day!
Bless us all this night, I pray,
And to the sun we all will bow
And say, good-bye – but just for now.”

Dylan Thomas – Under Milk Wood
