The best Quotes and Sayings

Grief is a hole you walk around in the daytime and at night you fall into it.

Grief & Condolence, SorrowDenise Levertov

Faith, ArtDenise Levertov

Every day I hear enough to fill a year of nights with wondering.

DoubtDenise Levertov

In the dark I rest,
unready for the light which dawns
day after day,
eager to be shared.
Black silk, shelter me.
I need
more of the night before I open
eyes and heart
to illumination. I must still
grow in the dark like a root
not ready, not ready at all.

Denise Levertov

I long for poems of an inner harmony in utter contrast to the chaos in which they exist.

PoemsDenise Levertov

Breathe the sweetness that hovers in August.
