Poem in October is a poem by the welsh poet Dylan Thomas. In it, the poet walks through his hometown shifting between the present and the past as his surroundings awaken memories. Musically, these themes: nostalgia, introspection, and the passing of time are heard as the instruments work with and against the singer immersing him, shaping him, and at times, colliding with him.
