D.H. Lawrence (1885–1930).  Amores.  1916.
 
42. Submergence
 
 
WHEN along the pavement,
Palpitating flames of life,
People flicker round me,
I forget my bereavement,
The gap in the great constellation,        5
The place where a star used to be.
 
Nay, though the pole-star
Is blown out like a candle,
And all the heavens are wandering in disarray,
Yet when pleiads of people are        10
Deployed around me, and I see
The street’s long outstretched Milky Way,
 
When people flicker down the pavement,
I forget my bereavement.
