Thousand Mornings by Mary Oliver

A Thousand Mornings: Poems by Mary Oliver. 2012 Penguin, first edition, 82 pages. Mary Oliver was a Pulitzer and National Book Award winning prolific poet who was greatly inspired by nature. Her career in poetry was unusual in that her books actually sold well. In her New York Times obituary: "For her abiding communion with nature, Ms. Oliver was often compared to Walt Whitman and Robert Frost. For her quiet, measured observations, and for her fiercely private personal mien (she gave many readings but few interviews, saying she wanted her work to speak for itself), she was likened to Emily Dickinson."  A Thousand Mornings was her tenth book of poetry.

Condition: Near fine.

"Today I'm flying low and I'm

not saying a word.

I'm letting all the voodoos of ambition sleep."
