Words and pictures from the author of the Elizabeth Goodweather Appalachian Mysteries and the forthcoming And the Crows Took Their Eyes . . .
Vicki, I didn't know she had died. Thank you so much for this post, and the beautiful poem of hers that you have selected. I love her work so much.
Such touching pictures and feelings from this woman, which is too little praise from me where more is deserved.
I will definitely look into her poems.
Sad for us, we who have been blessed by the images her words called forth. Glad that the world had her spirit for a while.
I’ve never been much of a poetry reader. But that all changed with Mary Oliver. When I heard yesterday that she had died, my heart ached. But as you say, she has left us so much and all the more reason to cherish it today.
One of my favorites...her words will never die. Funny, I thought she's live on an on. I was quite surprised that she died---at her home in Florida? She should have been by a pond near Provincetown.
Therese -- I think you would really enjoy them
