about

Described by Ted Hughes as ’the father of us all’, Thomas came late to poetry and it was only through his close friendship with Robert Frost that he finally turned to the form, writing all his work in just a few years before his death in the First World War.
He was a regular walker of his surroundings on the South Downs, which were the focus for much of his poetry, and this sense of place, connecting past and present is central to his work. Along with his obsession about roads and tracks, the traditional forest associations of enchantment, mystery and the unknown are all embedded in this poem. It is a meditation on the inevitability of sleep, welcome rest and ultimately death as a place of solace.
