Once Again with Wonder,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: A Thousand Mornings: Poems (Kindle Edition)
I greet any new volume from Mary Oliver eagerly, and this one is particularly fine. It seems tinged with a certain autumnal somberness. For the uninitiated, Oliver writes primarily about the natural world around her home in Provincetown, Massachusetts. (I'm taking "Lines Written in Days of Growing Darkness" to a solstice celebration.) But there are also poems here about her family, about the news and travel and about the demise of her endearing dog, Percy.
This is the first time I've downloaded poetry to my Kindle, and I am eager to see if I read it more often this way.
