Feel sorry for mine, and yours at first (4)


I believe the answer is:


'feel sorry' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'mine and yours at first' is the wordplay.
'mine' becomes 'pit' (down the pit**).
'and' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'at first' says to take the initial letters.
The first letter of 'yours' is 'y'.

'for' is the link.

(Other definitions for pity that I've seen before include "Commiseration" , "Sorrow for the misfortunes of others" , "Matter for regret" , "Cause of disappointment" , "Sympathy and sorrow" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
