This is a lovely book of poems from Mary Oliver. The poems are both accessible and beautiful.

Lovely. Accessible. Relate-able. Perfect poetry. And I don't even read poetry.

Her best collection since partner died but may be among her last if The Fourth Sign of the Zodiac is autobiographical. An announcement of the cancer that apparently 'entered the forest of my body.' One of the best esp after the passing of Seamus Heaney. Still full of lyrical wonder.
