This Side of Truth

This side of truth,

You may not see, my son,

King of your blue eyes

In the blinding country of youth,

That all is undone,

Under the unminding skies,

Of innocence and guilt

Before you move to make

One gesture of the heart or head,

Is gathered and split

Into the winding dark

Like the dust of the dead.

-Dylan Thomas
