by Mary Oliver

Mary Oliver has been known as the quintessential nature poet for decades. Her observations of the the most common occurrence in nature have always been revelations. In Thirst, Mary's poetry takes an important turn. Following the death of her partner of 40 years, Mary has a long dark year of the soul. The poems that are the result are nothing short of beautiful.

An Ohio native, Mary Oliver is one of our finest living poets. Her poems can be appreciated by anyone who reads poetry.
