D.H. Lawrence (1885–1930).  Amores.  1916.
 
36. Brooding Grief
 
 
A YELLOW leaf from the darkness
Hops like a frog before me.
Why should I start and stand still?
 
I was watching the woman that bore me
Stretched in the brindled darkness        5
Of the sick-room, rigid with will
To die: and the quick leaf tore me
Back to this rainy swill
Of leaves and lamps and traffic mingled before me.
