Here you will find the Poem Liaison of poet David Herbert Lawrence


A big bud of moon hangs out of the twilight,
 Star-spiders spinning their thread 
Hang high suspended, withouten respite
 Watching us overhead. 
Come then under the trees, where the leaf-cloths
 Curtain us in so dark
That here we?re safe from even the ermin-moth?s
 Flitting remark.
Here in this swarthy, secret tent,
 Where black boughs flap the ground,
You shall draw the thorn from my discontent,
 Surgeon me sound. 
This rare, rich night! For in here 
 Under the yew-tree tent 
The darkness is loveliest where I could sear 
 You like frankincense into scent. 
Here not even the stars can spy us,
 Not even the white moths write
With their little pale signs on the wall, to try us
 And set us affright.
Kiss but then the dust from off my lips,
 But draw the turgid pain 
From my breast to your bosom, eclipse
 My soul again. 
Waste me not, I beg you, waste
 Not the inner night: 
Taste, oh taste and let me taste
 The core of delight.
