The New York Times -bestselling collection of poems from celebrated poet Mary Oliver

In A Thousand Mornings , Mary Oliver returns to the imagery that has come to define her life's work, transporting us to the marshland and coastline of her beloved home, Provincetown, Massachusetts. Whether studying the leaves of a tree or mourning her treasured dog Percy, Oliver is open to the teachings contained in the smallest of moments and explores with startling clarity, humor, and kindness the mysteries of our daily experience.

I have only recently started to read Mary Oliver and this volume has made me want to read more. She has lines that just resonate for me "Have I experienced happiness with sufficient gratitude? Have I endured loneliness with grace?".

This set of poems was so poor that it was rather taxing to read them all; there were none that I liked and none that stood out from the rest.

Mary Oliver writes in a way that is both profound and approachable with easy grace. Highly recommend her poetry - Felicity has been my favorite of her books. This one has heavy focus on her relationship to nature. Morning Paper was my favorite.

Only Poet Mary Oliver can string simple words and phrases together to create literary pearls.

Her poems appear pedestrian on the surface until they hit me over the head with profundity.

I especially enjoyed, "Life Story" on page 71 and the poem about her dog, Percy.
