New and Selected Poems

New and Selected Poems As Diane Wakoski has noted, the power of Mary Oliver s Frost influenced pastoral writing is in her ability to cast a spell, to create the illusion that the natural world is graspable Oliver s fierce independence, beautiful imagery, and love and knowledge of the natural world are all driven by a searching mind, expressed in poems that make for good company In Some Questions You Might Ask, Oliver gives us this one to chew over Is the soul solid, like iron or is it tender and breakable, like the wings of a moth in the beak of an owl Highly recommended.

    Every poem in here is perfection, but my favorites are , of course, Morning Poem and Wild Geese Here s Wild Geese You do not have to be good.You do not have to walk on your kneesfor a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.Meanwhile the world goes on.Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rainare moving across the landscapes,over the prairies and the Every poem in here is perfection, but my favorites are , of course, Morning Poem and Wild Geese Here s Wild Geese You do not have to be good.You do not have to walk on your kneesfor a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.Tell me about despair, you...

    This was my first book of poetry by Mary Oliver who has grown to be among my most very favorite poets Some classics in this collection most of which are from previously published collections going back to American Primitive and each of these has stood up to the test of multiple readings over decades of reading poetry are When Death Comes Rice Hummingbird Pauses at Trumpet Vine The Buddha s Last Instruction The Swan The Summer Day Maybe perhaps my most favorite poem about This was my first book of poetry by Mary Oliver who has grown to be among my most very favorite poets Some classics in this collection most of which are from previously published collections going back to American Primitive and each of these has stood up to the test of multiple readings over decades of reading poetry are When Death Comes Rice Hummingbird Pauses at Trumpet Vine The Buddha s Last Instruction The Sw...

    My brother gave me this book, not knowing that I met Mary Oliver s poems many years before Some of her poems build toward such a strong last line, that they are still with me today, many years later From The Summer Day Tell me, what is it you plan to dowith your one wild and precious life Although I reread her books periodically, when I come upon certain poems, it s like meeting an old friend with whom you can pick up the conversation again, seemingly right were you left off years My brother gave me this book, not knowing that I met Mary Oliver s poems many years before Some of her poems build toward such a strong last line, that they are still with me today, many years later From The Summer Day Tell me, what is it you plan to dowith your one wild and precious life Although I reread her books periodically, when I come upon certain poems, it s like meeting an old friend with whom you can pick up the conversation again, seemingly right were you left off years before.She us...

    for the right person, Oliver delivers an emotional and metaphoric experience that can bring comfort and challenge all at once i ve used Oliver in my artwork for many years i have not stopped loving her way of ending a piece with an aphoristic flourish there is something sonnet like about it that really works in a meditative inspirational way she IS accessible that is the best of it and it is also the definition of her limits, if limits are important any poem that begins you do not have for the right person, Oliver delivers an emotional and metaphoric experience that can bring comfort and challenge all at once i ve used Oliver in my artwork for many years i have not stopped loving her way of ending a piece with an aphoristic flourish there is something sonnet like about it that really works in a meditative inspirational ...

    My father gave me a copy of this collection of poetry for my birthday in the year 2000 Eighteen years later, I finally finished reading it The reason this book took me so long to finish is not because I did not like it I loved it It s just that, for me, Mary Oliver s poems need to percolate so I cannot ingest a whole bunch of the poems in one sitting I would read a handful of poems and then would need to sit with them for awhile before tacklingMary Oliver is one of my favorite poets My father gave me a copy of this collection of poetry for my birthday in the year 2000 Eighteen years later, I finally finished reading it The reason this book took me so long to finish is not because I did not like it I loved it It s just that, for me, Mary Oliver s poems need to percolate so I cannot ingest a whole bunch of the poems in one sitting I would read a handful of poems and then would need to sit with them for awhile before tacklingMary Oliver is one of my favorite ...

    A beautiful collection of poems Mary Oliver s poetry has depth, breadth, and a whispered sort of beauty They force your eyes open to behold, to gaze, to wonder This is life Live it Though each poem is a laude to life, entwined in each is a serenade to mortality, to the fleeting nature of li...

    Oliver follows in the footsteps of Emily Dickinson, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoraeu She writes about nature using simple yet powerful images She exposes the wonder of the natural world for us and invites us to explore it ourselves.
