Words: D.H. Lawrence // People

I like people quite well

at a little distance.

I like to see them passing and passing

and going their own way,

especially if I see their aloneness alive in them.

Yet I don’t want them to come near.

If they will only leave me alone

I can still have the illusion that there is room enough in the world.
