it was amazing

Mary Oliver is one of my all-time favorite poets-- I do not say this lightly, as a poet and voracious reader of poetry myself. Oliver's poetry is exquisite in its clarity and no one can make a nature metaphor more beautiful! Another excellent offering from Oliver. Her series of poems about her dog, Percy, are delightful and well-worth rereading (and sharing with friends, as I have done). Bravo! I've reread these poems at least ten times in two months I've had the volume. For anyone who thinks poetry is stuffy or intimidating, please introduce yourself to this text, stat. :)
