Aware Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


When I found the doorA
I found the vine leavesB
speaking among themselves in abundantC
My presence made themE
hush their green breathF
embarrassed the wayG
humans stand up buttoning their jacketsH
acting as if they were leaving anyway as ifI
the conversation had endedJ
just before you arrivedK
I likedL
the glimpse I had thoughM
of their obscureN
gestures I liked the soundO
of such private voices Next timeP
I'll move like cautious sunlight openQ
the door by fractions eavesdropR
