From D. H. Lawrence’s poem, ‘Things men have made’:

Things men have made with wakened hands,

and put soft life into are awake through years with

transferred touch,

and go on glowing for long years.

And for this reason, some old things are lovely

warm still with the life of forgotten men who made

them.
