As you probably know by now, Denise Levertov is one of my favorite poets. I don’t quite know why, but I’ve been going to her a lot recently. She feeds something deep within me. Here are a few lines from The Fountain:
Don’t say, don’t say there is no water
to solace the dryness at our hearts.
I have seen
the fountain springing out of the rock wall
and you drinking there. And I too
before your eyes
found footholds and climbed
to drink the cool water.
