Mary is the name on all our lips today (Mary Oliver)

On the Loss of a Poet who said:

“the tree is my sister”

                        Mary Oliver

 

Mary is the name on all our lips today;

those who love nature,

those who love poetry,

 

geese and ponds, snow –

things that are gentle

like all things in nature.

 

She gave us a thousand mornings

in but one poem

in many; spring mornings

 

or snow. She knows the sea

will go on doing its work.

And she is with Molly now.
