Her special gift is to connect us with our sources in the natural world, its beauties and terrors and mysteries and consolations. Oliver has a deep understanding of nature, and deftly avoids the 'plant-eaters good, meat-eaters bad' anthropomorphism of lesser voices Mary Oliver, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for poetry, is one of the most celebrated and best-selling poets in America. She lives in Provincetown, Massachusetts. This book is a really great variety of poetry. It is heavy on Wordsworth, etc, but also has a nice mixture of others.

I discovered a number of poems that I really loved, and, of course, there were a number that I was less than crazy for. Fantastic book for poetry lovers.

The Sound of William Barnes's Dialect Poems
It explains hard words and has a mini biography for many of the poets. This is a beautiful book that has a differnt poem for every day of the year. There is a real collection of classic and modern and something for most tastes. I am not a massive poetry buff - I have read and enjoyed Wilfred Owen war poems and Christina Rossetti but I haven't progressed much further than that yet, which is why I loved this book.

It introduced me to poems that I would never normally have looked at and I have fallen in love with some of them. On each page is the poem for the day, som This is a beautiful book that has a differnt poem for every day of the year. On each page is the poem for the day, some explanatory notes if needed and also a section for "on this day in year " such and such a poet was born, died, had something published etc. I really love this book and I like dipping in and out and of course I have my favourites now that I can go back to.
I would recommend this as a lovley gift for someone or for people like me that haven't come across much poetry - it's a great introduction. Poem for the Day has been a wonderful way to start the day for the last year. It contains a good collection of classics old and new and also some poems that I hadn't encountered before. The editors seem to have taken a rather hit and miss approach to notes, with some poems left to stand and speak for themselves, while others are covered by a spreading rash of explanation and clarification.
That aside, this is a lovely book and would be an excellent birthday gift for a friend just staring to disc Poem for the Day has been a wonderful way to start the day for the last year.

That aside, this is a lovely book and would be an excellent birthday gift for a friend just staring to discover the variety and depth of poetry in English. A pleasant enough collection of verse though perhaps tending more toward classics than modern poetry its a good way to get back into reading poetry though if you are like me you will probably find yourself heading off in a different direction after a while as you become more acquainted with the poets themselves. Nov 11, Rgoldenberg marked it as to-read.
What a profound little book! I finished my second reading of the book at age 49 after reading it as teen--and I enjoyed as much the second time around as the first.
The symbols caged bird, river, etc. The question I was pondering during my latest reading was whether the character of Siddhartha represents the story of the Buddha.

Oh what's coming today! I think I will try to learn some by heart. Wanna get the version "Two" of this book, too. Mar 04, David Roberts rated it it was amazing Shelves: daily-reading. Another Top 10 daily reader. Outstanding poems every day of the year.
David Whyte once said, "You know, you could do a lot worse than to read just one poem a day," and I took him up on that six years ago and have been doing it ever since.
Poems in Two Volumes, Volume 1 by William Wordsworth
All three of these volumes are outstanding, but, alas, not available on Kindle. I like to read some poetry each day, so this was near perfect for me. Excellent and diverse selection, with interesting head and foot notes about the poets, literary figures, notable anniversaries It is still at the side of the bed and likely to stay there for some time. I will continue to dip into it. Apr 05, Gene Ripka rated it really liked it Shelves: poetry.
