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!

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..."

WILD RELEASE NOTES:
