Original Text: 
D. H. Lawrence, Look! We Have Come Through! (London: Chatto and Windus, 1917): 118. PR 6023 A93 L6 Robarts Library.
1The great gold apples of night
2Hang from the street's long bough
3     Dripping their light
4On the faces that drift below,
5On the faces that drift and blow
6Down the night-time, out of sight
8The ripeness of these apples of night
9Distilling over me
10     Makes sickening the white
12Them endlessly, endlessly by
13Without meaning or reason why
14     They ever should be.

Notes
