A Dreamer

The Well

By Denise Levertow

At sixteen I believed the moonlight

could change me if I would.

I moved my head

on the pillow, even moved my bed

as the moon slowly

crossed the open lattice.

I wanted beauty, a dangerous

gleam of steel, my body thinner,

my face paler.

I moonbathed

diligently, as others sunbathe.

But the moon's unsmiling stare

kept me awake. Mornings,

I was flushed and cross.

It was on dark nights of deep sleep

that I dreamed the most, sunk in the well,

and woke rested, and if not beautiful,

filled with some other power.
