D.H. Lawrence (1885–1930).  Amores.  1916.
 
29. At the Window
 
 
THE PINE-TREES bend to listen to the autumn wind as it mutters
Something which sets the black poplars ashake with hysterical laughter;
While slowly the house of day is closing its eastern shutters.
 
Further down the valley the clustered tombstones recede,
Winding about their dimness the mist’s grey cerements, after        5
The street lamps in the darkness have suddenly started to bleed.
 
The leaves fly over the window and utter a word as they pass
To the face that leans from the darkness, intent, with two dark-filled eyes
That watch for ever earnestly from behind the window glass.
