Lovely, feel-good poems. Not as thought-provoking to me as some of her other collections but still a calm and thoughtful way to start the day.

Today
The First Time Percy Came Back (maybe my favorite in this collection)
A Thousand Mornings
Hum, Hum

Another book I have been slowly absorbing. Reading Mary Oliver instantly transports me to a calm place. I always kind of have rejected poetry and I don’t know why but I’m glad I gave MO a chance. I think her poems are paired well with pausing and taking deep breaths of fresh air.

An absolutely divine collection of poetry for those trying to live an examined life and who love nature. I took my time with A Thousand Mornings, I tried to savour it like a good wine, and I loved my reading experience. There were many poems which really struck me. Oliver's poems make me fall in love with life and nature itself!
If you wonder, 'What is the meaning of life?', this collection is for you.
