Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892–1950).  Renascence and Other Poems.  1917.
 
6. Sorrow
 
 
SORROW like a ceaseless rain
    Beats upon my heart.
People twist and scream in pain,—
Dawn will find them still again;
This has neither wax nor wane,        5
    Neither stop nor start.
 
People dress and go to town;
    I sit in my chair.
All my thoughts are slow and brown:
Standing up or sitting down        10
Little matters, or what gown
    Or what shoes I wear.
