A poetry recommendation from a Poetry on Loan member

This time our recommendation is from Nickie, a Poetry on Loan member. I didn't want this to be just me recommending things from my bookshelves! One of Nickie's favourite poets is Mary Oliver. Mary Oliver's poems give you the chance to pause and take a breath; to appreciate your surroundings and all the experiences that make our lives so special. Wild geese is probably her best-known poem; my favourite is a very short poem called The uses of sorrow. You'll easily find lots more poems by Mary Oliver on the Internet.
