The Quest
~Denise Levertov

High, hollowed in green
above the rocks of reason
lies the crater lake
whose ice the dreamer breaks
to find a summer season.

‘He will plunge like a plummet down
far into the hungry tides’
they cry, but as the sea
climbs to a lunar magnet,
so the dreamer pursues
the lake where love resides.
