Poetry Friday: Coming Awake by D.H. Lawrence

April 17th, 2015 (06:00 am)

Current Mood: sleepy
Current Song: Leverage score music by Joseph LoDuca

When I woke, the lake-lights were quivering on the wall,
The sunshine swam in a shoal across and across,
And a hairy, big bee hung over the primulas
In the window, his body black fur, and the sound of him cross.

There was something I ought to remember: and yet
I did not remember. Why should I? The running lights
And the airy primulas, oblivious
Of the impending bee - they were fair enough sights.

- Coming Awake by D.H. Lawrence
