This is a lovely little book of simple, yet profound, poems about life, love, aging, spirituality, identity, mortality, and other topics. Mary Oliver is a national treasure. I love her work!

Journal Entry 3 by wingGoryDetailswing at Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Friday, April 27, 2018
I'm claiming this from the LGBTQ+ Mini-Bookbox. I opened it at random and landed on the poem "Meadowlark," and it made me want to read the rest.

Later: A very good collection here, with clean, clear poems on life, aging, and memory. I especially liked "I Am Pleased to Tell You," in which we can still meet long-dead artists through their works; "Storage," about being free from the burden of possessions; and "That Little Beast," about "That pretty little beast, a poem..."

Released 9 mos ago (5/14/2018 UTC) at Main Street (see release notes for details) in Nashua, New Hampshire USA

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

I plan to leave this book on or near one of the colorfully-painted pianos on Main Street; hope the finder enjoys it! [Update: the piano at this little park near the Main Street bridge was still swathed in its protective tarp, so I couldn't get a photo this time.]
