Mary Oliver

Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?

I had the pleasure of being introduced to the poet Mary Oliver by my dear friend Kelsa. She gifted me the book Dog Songs in honor of our new puppy Bodhi and that’s how I began to fall in love with Mary’s poetry.

If you are looking for an inspiring, simple and kind poet I invite you to explore Mary’s work.

Here are some examples you may love:

When it’s over, I want to say all my life
I was a bride married to amazement.
