more inspiration

April is our National Poetry Month

Sofia's comment about her Eloise Greenfield poem, inspired me to look through this poetry book given to me by my mother.  I'd like to share one of my favorites from the collection.

Click here to read "Morning Poem" by Mary Oliver.

Is there a poem that you love?  Please tell me what it is!


  1. Hey! Bienveniste read that to us! Lovely poem.

  2. from Mary Oliver's collection:

    When it's over, I want to say: all my life
    I was the bride married to amazement.
    I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.
