One Christmas was so much like another in those years around the sea town corner now and out of all sound except the distant speaking of the voices I sometimes hear a moment before sleep that I can never remember whether it snowed for six days and six nights when I was twelve or whether it snowed for twelve days and twelve nights when I was six This is a lovely picture book illustrated by Chris Raschka of the familiar but now forgotten by many tale written by Welsh poet Dylan Thomas Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night that is always good to read around the holidays Not really limited to a kid story either Wonderful wonderful language and joyful telling It snowed last year too I made a snowman and my brother knocked it down and I knocked my brother down and then we had tea The watercolor art is not as soft and inviting as one might expect from such a nostalgic project it s an abstract expressionistic depiction of the world of Thomas s tale but it s colorful and joyful nevertheless Merry Christmas to all those of you that celebrate that Here s some of his lovely language to celebrate either way Looking through my bedroom window out into the moonlight and the unending smoke colored snow I could see the lights in the windows of all the other houses on our hill and hear the music rising from them up the long steadily falling night I turned the gas down I got into bed I said some words to the close and holy darkness and then I slept If you haven t heard it for some time or never have here is a recording of Thomas himself reading it in February 1952 It is indeed good to have his mellifluous Welsh voice reading his own gorgeous words as you read them and look at the illustrations But if you can t get the book on short notice just listen to it here as I just did Yes this is actually the voice of the great poet Dylan Thomas back from the dead
