The Gods! The Gods!

The Gods! The Gods!

People were bathing and posturing themselves on the beach,
And all was dreary, great robot limbs, robot breasts,
Robot voices, robot even the gay umbrellas.

But a woman, shy and alone, was washing herself under a tap and the glimmer of the presence of the gods was like
Lilies, and like water-lilies.



Poem The Gods! The Gods! - David Herbert Lawrence
