D. H. Lawrence
(1885-1930), English poet
me not if I should say to you
do forget the sounding of your voice,
do forget your eyes that searching through
mists perceive our marriage, and rejoice.
when the apple-blossom opens wide
the pallid moonlight's fingering,
see your blanched face at my breast, and hide
eyes from diligent work, malingering.
then, upon my bedroom I do draw
blind to hide the garden, where the moon
the open blossoms as they straw
beauty for his taking, boon for boon.
I do lift my aching arms to you,
I do lift my anguished, avid breast,
I do weep for very pain of you,
fling myself at the doors of sleep, for rest.
I do toss through the troubled night for you,
your yielded mouth is given to mine,
your strong breast carry me on into
peace where sleep is stronger even than wine.
