D.H. Lawrence (1885–1930).  Amores.  1916.
 
31. Sorrow
 
 
WHY does the thin grey strand
Floating up from the forgotten
Cigarette between my fingers,
Why does it trouble me?
 
Ah, you will understand;        5
When I carried my mother downstairs,
A few times only, at the beginning
Of her soft-foot malady,
 
I should find, for a reprimand
To my gaiety, a few long grey hairs        10
On the breast of my coat; and one by one
I let them float up the dark chimney.
