On the reasons why

I read somewhere of a shepherd who, when asked why he made, from within fairy rings, ritual observances to the moon to protect his flocks, replied: "I'd be a damn fool if I didn't!" These poems, with all their crudities, doubts, and confusions, are written for the love of Humans and in praise of God, and I'd be a damn fool if they weren't.

Dylan Thomas, Note in his Collected Poems
