I am a great fan of the novelist and poet D.H Lawrence. When I read his work I feel as if the words are almost singing at me from the page. I have read many of his novels – one of my favourites being The Virgin and the Gypsy – and recently began to take a look at his poetry.
In a way, even though he wrote a hundred years ago, we could view him as current, because his work covers many issues that are still important today.
Many years have I still to burn, detained
Like a candle flame on this body; but I enshrine
A darkness within me, a presence which sleeps contained
In my flame of living, her soul enfolded in mine.
And through these years, while I burn on the fuel of life,
What matter the stuff I lick up in my living flame,
Seeing I keep in the fire-core, inviolate,
A night where she dreams my dreams for me, ever the same.
