Ugly Sister by Philip Larkin

 

Ugly Sister 

I will climb thirty steps to my room,

Lie on my bed;

Let the music, the violin, cornet and drum

Drowse from my head.

Since I was not bewitched in adolescence

And brought to love

I will attend to the trees and their gracious silence,

To winds that move.

~ Philip Larkin
