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

3. From a College Window


THE GLIMMER of the limes, sun-heavy, sleeping, 
  Goes trembling past me up the College wall. 
Below, the lawn, in soft blue shade is keeping, 
  The daisy-froth quiescent, softly in thrall. 
  
Beyond the leaves that overhang the street,         5
  Along the flagged, clean pavement summer-white, 
Passes the world with shadows at their feet 
  Going left and right. 
  
Remote, although I hear the beggar’s cough, 
  See the woman’s twinkling fingers tend him a coin,  10
I sit absolved, assured I am better off 
  Beyond a world I never want to join.
