Mary Oliver quotes Bob Dylan as saying, "Anything worth thinking about is worth singing about." To that we would add that, "Anything worth singing about is worth writing poetry about." Mary Oliver continues to write poems that bring our thoughts and songs to life. Whether writing of Blake Dying or of The First Time Percy [her dog] Came Back everything is exalted, nothing is dismissed. In this beautiful little volume we are taken deep into the natural world and deep inside the Poet herself. With its enchanting cover image of a late season sunrise over a dark forested ridge and frozen water, this is a perfect Christmas gift for someone special.
