BROODING GRIEF, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: A yellow leaf from the darkness
Last Line: Of leaves and lamps and traffic mingled before me.
Alternate Author Name(s): Lawrence, D. H.
Subject(s): Grief; Sorrow; Sadness


A YELLOW leaf from the darkness
Hops like a frog before me.
Why should I start and stand still?

I was watching the woman that bore me
Stretched in the brindled darkness
Of the sick-room, rigid with will
To die: and the quick leaf tore me
Back to this rainy swill
Of leaves and lamps and traffic mingled before me.
