What changes is an increased focus on nature and an increased precision with language that has made her one of our very best poets. . . . These poems sustain us rather than divert us. Although few poets have fewer human beings in their poems than Mary Oliver, it is ironic that few poets also go so far to help us forward." -Stephen Dobyns, The New York Times Book ReviewHide synopsis

I'm a huge Nature lover and adore the immediacy of Mary's impressions. Beautiful poems. I read them again and again. I often gift this book for weddings, bring it to sick friends, hospital visits, use it before meditating sometimes, copy the poems for gifts and cards. It's one of my most treasured poetry collections. Even if you're not a huge poetry person you may find these very accessible. The imagery is stunning. In my top 5 of modern literary works!
