New Years Eve
a poem by D.H.Lawrence

 D.H. Lawrence

There are only two things now, 
The great black night scooped out 
And this fire-glow. 

This fire-glow, the core, 
And we the two ripe pips 
That are held in store. 

Listen, the darkness rings 
As it circulates round our fire. 
Take off your things. 

Your shoulders, your bruised throat! 
Your breasts, your nakedness! 
This fiery coat! 

As the darkness flickers and dips, 
As the firelight falls and leaps 
From your feet to your lips!

D. H. Lawrence
