Mary Oliver, a poet who lives on Cape Cod and writes about Nature in simple language, has just come out with a new volume of poetry called “Dog Songs.” I was reading an article about her and this new publication when I came across this poem of hers:

“Every day

I see or I hear

something

that more or less

kills me

with delight.”

Wanted to post it here to start off the week.
