National Poetry Month: Dazzled by Mary Oliver

In honor of National Poetry Month, we offer a short reflection on poet Mary Oliver.

“When it’s over, I want to say: all my life I was a bride married to amazement. I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.”
– Mary Oliver

Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Mary Oliver chronicled her life of observation and amazement in her many poems and collections, which can be found in our catalog. And take a look at today’s Shelf Awareness newsletter for a thoughtful reflection on the significance  and impact of Oliver’s work.
