|D.H. Lawrence (1885-1930), was an English novelist, storywriter (for which he is perhaps most famous), critic, poet and painter.
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.
