D.H. Lawrence (1885–1930).  New Poems.  1916.

2. Coming Awake


WHEN I woke, the lake-lights were quivering on the wall, 
  The sunshine swam in a shoal across and across, 
And a hairy, big bee hung over the primulas 
  In the window, his body black fur, and the sound of him cross. 
  
There was something I ought to remember: and yet         5
  I did not remember. Why should I? The running lights 
And the airy primulas, oblivious 
  Of the impending bee—they were fair enough sights.
