Devotions by Mary Oliver: The Selected Poems


Devotions: The Selected Poems of Mary Oliver, October 10, 2017, Penguin Press
I browsed and looked at this collection of poems by Mary Oliver and then bought it after reading some of he poems! I love her emphasis and appreciation for all of nature, and her simple and meaningful way of expressing her thoughts and observations.

She chose the poems for this edition, so they must have special meaning for her. The collection is called Devotions, but they are not prayers as such. At least, I haven't seen any in the book as yet.

Oh I'll have to see if my library has a copy. I don't read a lot of poetry, but this collection sounds good.
