    DescriptionThe forty-seven new works in this volume include poems on crickets, toads, trout lilies, black snakes, goldenrod, bears, greeting the morning, watching the deer, and, finally, lingering in happiness. Each poem is imbued with the extraordinary perceptions of a poet who considers the everyday in our lives and the natural world around us and finds a multitude of reasons to wake early.

    Review quote
    Praise for Mary Oliver's poetry: 'These are life enhancing and redemptive poems that coax the sublime from the subliminal.' --Sally Connolly, "Poetry" 'Mary Oliver's poems are natural growths out of a loam of perception and feeling, and instinctive skill with language makes them seem effortless. Reading them is a sensual delight.' --May Swenson 'The gift of Oliver's poetry is that she communicates the beauty she finds in the world and makes it unforgettable.' -"Miami Herald"
