Percy (One)

Our new dog, named for the beloved poet,
ate a book which unfortunately we had
left unguarded.
Fortunately, it was the Bhagavad Gita,
of which many copies are available.
Every day now, as Percy grows
into the beauty of his life, we touch
his wild, curly head and say,

"Oh, wisest of little dogs."

Mary Oliver's poems make my heart ache with love for the natural world and for the world of men of gentle souls equally. For worlds beyond this one, too.

Pamela wow! Where did you run across this book to read?
This poem is beautiful!

rachel Found it at work! I adore Mary Oliver, especially her animal poems, and this was a collection of all of those. She seems like a great match for you too. Here's my fave poem by her, dissolves me into a weeping mess every time: http://seekingauthenticvoice.blogspot...
