Comment on Aware and see more Denise Levertov poems below.
When I found the door
I found the vine leaves
speaking among themselves in abundant
My presence made them
hush their green breath,
embarrassed, the way
humans stand up, buttoning their jackets,
acting as if they were leaving anyway, as if
the conversation had ended
just before you arrived.
the glimpse I had, though,
of their obscure
I liked the sound
of such private voices.
I'll move like cautious sunlight, open
the door by fractions, eavesdrop
