What I Want For My Birthday.

May 23, 2009

My birthday’s coming up.  Hooray for me!

And I want something from the blogosphere:

Leave one of the following in the comments.

The name of a book you have read more times than any other.

A book you have read recently and really loved.

Your favorite poem.

Your favorite joke.

Your favorite recipe.

I will reciprocate, in a few days.  Though picking one favorite recipe will be tough, and I can’t tell my favorite joke on the Internet- it’s a bit of a sight gag.

    I feel like you know the answers to a lot of these already (I mean, you can check my blog for books I’ve read recently and loved, though I haven’t reviewed Powers yet), and you probably know I’ve re-read LOTR a bunch of times. And the Wizard of Earthsea, which you may or may not know I’ve reread a bunch of times.

    For favorite poems, the one that springs to mind is Dylan Thomas:

    Do not go gentle into that good night,
    Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
    Because their words had forked no lightning they
    Do not go gentle into that good night.

    Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
    Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
    And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
    Do not go gentle into that good night.

    Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
    Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    And you, my father, there on the sad height,
    Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
    Do not go gentle into that good night.
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
