Having just been introduced to Mary Oliver by my daughter, I bought A Thousand Mornings and I was
immediately touched by her imagery and sympathy for animals and nature. She brings tears to my eyes
with her beautiful elegy for her dog. She seems a bit more wistful and perhaps lonely but I have a lot of
catching up on her previous books of poetry before I can actually say that. I had bought this book for my
daughter but I'm keeping it for myself and buying another for her. I had read the other review and just
wanted to add my opinion because A Thousand Mornings deserves more. It is filled with beauty. It is a
moving testament to the beauty of nature and the difficulty with aging. I recommend it and I shall savor
reading all her earlier books of poetry.
