Once upon a time

once upon a time

Once upon a time you told me,
I remember in my bones,
That when the bad world had rolled me
Over on the scalding stones,
Shameless, lost, as the day I came
I should with my beggar’s cup
Howl down the wind and call your name
And you, you would raise me up.

— A letter to Marged Howard-Stepney by Dylan Thomas
