Pencil People Meet D. H. Lawrence

My Pencil People asked me if the ghost
of David Herbert Lawrence might consider
joining them for pencil tea in their menagerie.

What could Mr. Lawrence do but happily agree? 
There was a sigh in his reply: "No one but they
in all these years have cared to contact me."

("Dared" is what my pencil people thought
they'd heard - an apter word that
had occurred as well to me.)
