Sometimes a book of poetry is just the company I'm looking for. Pulling this book off of my shelf and opening it up is a delightful experience. It is full of wonderful, little gems that I don't run into in my other books.

Sangha

I gave up my house

Another very good anthology of spiritual poetry by women, from ancient to modern times. Covers many of the same poets as Women in Praise of the Sacred, like Mirabai, Mahadevi, Lal Ded, Sappho, Sun Buer, Dickenson, Tsvetaeva, but also several different poets. The two books together make a good collection.
