Memorial Listing


When the Ripe Fruit Falls--

When the ripe fruit falls
its sweetness distils and trickles away into
the veins of the earth.

 * * *  
When fulfilled people die
the essential oil of their experience enters
the veins of living space, and adds a glisten
to the atom, to the body of immortal chaos.

* * *
For space is alive
and it stirs like a swan
whose feathers glisten
silky with oil of distilled experience.


By D.H. Lawrence
