A Thousand Mornings: Poems by Mary Oliver


No words to describe Mary Oliver's prowess. She writes with such elan that each poem felt like a gem mined from the earth. I'll read another poetry book by her before this challenge ends.

My favourites:

1. I go down to the shore
2. I happened to be standing
3. Foolishness? No, it's not.
4. If I were
5. Poem of the one world
6. Three things to remember
7. Today
8. The moth, the mountains, the rivers
9. A thousand mornings
10. I have decided
11. In our woods sometimes a rare music
12. The morning paper
13. The poet compares human nature to the ocean from which we came
14. Life story
15. Varanasi
