A Baby Asleep After Pain
A Baby Asleep After Pain, by D.H. Lawrence
en francais
  AS a drenched, drowned bee
Hangs numb and heavy from a bending flower,
  So clings to me
My baby, her brown hair brushed with wet tears
  And laid against her cheek;        5
Her soft white legs hanging heavily over my arm
Swinging heavily to my movements as I walk.
  My sleeping baby hangs upon my life,
Like a burden she hangs on me.
  She has always seemed so light,        10
But now she is wet with tears and numb with pain
Even her floating hair sinks heavily,
  Reaching downwards;
As the wings of a drenched, drowned bee
  Are a heaviness, and a weariness.        15
