The Lawrence Memorial

The photograph above shows the D. H. Lawrence Memorial at the Kiowa Ranch near Taos, New Mexico.  Lawrence arrived in America and first saw the ranch (formerly called "Flying Heart") in 1922. He and his wife, Frieda, lived there during the summers of 1924 and 1925.  It was the only property the Lawrences ever owned.  After his death, Frieda stayed at the ranch for a number of years enjoying the company of many famous visitors.   The ranch today belongs to the University of New Mexico and is used for writers' retreats.  In the essay "New Mexico," Lawrence wrote:

I think New Mexico was the greatest experience from the outside world that I have ever had.  It certainly changed me for ever. . . . In the magnificent fierce morning of New Mexico one sprang awake, a new part of the soul woke up suddenly, and the old world gave way to a new. . . .

Phoenix

The phoenix renews her youth
only when she is burnt, burnt alive, burnt down
to hot and flocculent ash.
Then the small stirring of a new small bub in the nest
with strands of down like floating ash
shows that she is renewing her youth like the eagle,
immortal bird.

--D. H. Lawrence
