This Day in History

Nov 9 1953

Dylan Thomas allegedly drinks himself to death.

Who is Dylan Thomas, a Welsh Poet and writer who is quoted as saying

"An alcoholic is someone you don't like, who drinks as much as you do."

You can read more about him HERE, but I will close with this poem:

And death shall have no dominion.
Dead men 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.
