Mornings with the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Mary Oliver

 

In A THOUSAND MORNINGS, Mary Oliver returns to the imagery that has come to define her life’s work, transporting us to the marshland and coastline of her beloved home, Provincetown, Massachusetts. In these pages, Oliver shares the wonder of dawn, the grace of animals, and the transformative power of attention. Whether studying the leaves of a tree or mourning her adored dog, Percy, she is ever patient in her observations and open to the teachings contained in the smallest of moments.

 Our most precious chronicler of physical landscape, Oliver opens our eyes to the nature within, to its wild and its quiet. With startling clarity, humor, and kindness, A THOUSAND MORNINGS explores the mysteries of our daily experience.

Instructions for writing beautiful, necessary poetry: "Pay attention. Be astonished. Tell about it."

Mary Oliver said it herself, and she does as she advises. I love her for it.

I have been a fan of Mary Oliver and her work for many years, and I own every one of her books. I had the privilege of meeting her, just a few years ago, and it was like meeting a poem.

This book doesn't disappoint. Mary only gets better.

Rock on, Mary!
