Subtitle from jacket.
In A THOUSAND MORNINGS, Mary Oliver returns to the imagery that has come to define her life's work, transporting us to the marshland and coastline of her beloved home, Provincetown, Massachusetts. In these pages, Oliver shares the wonder of dawn, the grace of animals, and the transformative power of attention. Whether studying the leaves of a tree or mourning her adored dog, Percy, she is ever patient in her observations and open to the teachings contained in the smallest of moments.

A wonderful collection of poems submitted by SamanthaR on February 6, 2017, 9:34am A wonderful collection of poems centered mainly on nature and human kind's relationship with nature. Each poem is beautifully written and gives the reader pause and contemplation.

Restful, energizing, funny, achingly beautiful submitted by jletaw on August 25, 2017, 7:29pm Naturalist and Poet mary Oliver has been running away to the forest for most of her adult life, and her poems are her reports on her experiences there. From onservation as prayer, to description as admiration, she is able to perform alchemy on her time among all things great and small into poems that are spare, surgically precise, funny, somehow magically universal. Mary Oliver is definitely poetry for people who don't "do" poetry.
