    O why do you walk through the fields in gloves,
    Missing so much and so much?
    O fat white woman whom nobody loves,
    Why do you walk through the fields in gloves,
    When the grass is soft as the breast of doves
    And shivering sweet to the touch?
    Frances Cornford (1886–1960)

    I am so sick, so sick, so sick:
    O death, come quick, come quick, come quick,
    Come quick, come quick, come quick, come quick. . . .
    —Frances Cornford (1886–1960)
