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

25. Palimpsest of Twilight


DARKNESS comes out of the earth 
  And swallows dip into the pallor of the west; 
From the hay comes the clamour of children’s mirth; 
  Wanes the old palimpsest. 
  
The night-stock oozes scent,         5
  And a moon-blue moth goes flittering by: 
All that the worldly day has meant 
  Wastes like a lie. 
  
The children have forsaken their play; 
  A single star in a veil of light  10
Glimmers: litter of day 
  Is gone from sight.
