In this New York Times-bestselling collection of poems, A Thousand Mornings, the late great 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. Whether studying the leaves of a tree or mourning her treasured dog Percy, Oliver is open to the teachings contained in the smallest of moments and explores with startling clarity, humor, and kindness the mysteries of our daily experience.
Why We Love This Gift: Mary Oliver offers solace as she considers human experiences alongside or within nature. In embracing the immensity of beauty and pain, the reader is moved to better understand both the sweetness and sadness of life.
What To Express In Your Card: I hope you find comfort and perspective in these poems. I feels that words sometimes fail - although I think Oliver's often succeed. I just want to say I am thinking of you near constantly. I am sending you so much love.
