Poem By William Shakespeare
Poem suggestion by Charles Williams
Sometimes Dale can goof-up even for Dale and he could feel really down and be hard on himself(Consummation Tangent is a perfect example of this).But looking on Foxglove,he remembers that her love for him sees through all self-doubt,all mistakes...and he feels reborn.
A stranger has come
To share my room in the house not right in the head,
A girl mad as birds
Bolting the night of the door with her arm her plume.
Strait in the mazed bed
She deludes the heaven-proof house with entering clouds
Yet she deludes with walking the nightmarish room,
At large as the dead,
Or rides the imagined oceans of the male wards.
She has come possessed
Who admits the delusive light through the bouncing wall,
Possessed by the skies
She sleeps in the narrow trough yet she walks the dust
Yet raves at her will
On the madhouse boards worn thin by my walking tears.
And taken by light in her arms at long and dear last
I may without fail
Suffer the first vision that set fire to the stars.
A stranger has come
You know, on reading that now, it DOES seem to fit Dale's situation! I know he's not much of a poet or fancy talker, but I can imagine him reciting this poem in his heart when he observes his wife (how did he get so lucky?) enjoying with childlike enthusiasm the comforts of a life she was for so long cruelly denied. (I hope it doesn't appear as if all the joy and "magic" of this relationship goes one way. In my stories Dale's appearance and ultimate accepting of her is sheer bliss to Foxy, absolutely too good to be true. It's just that I can't think offhand of any poems from her point of view. Maybe some of the female Rangerphiles could find such more easily.)
Anyway, hope you liked it. There are lots of webpages dedicated to Dylan Thomas, the simple lad with no college education who had thoughts so deep and profound no intellectual can equal.
