    For Mari and fellow readers: If I were to get my first book of Mary Oliver’s poems, which one would you recommend? Thank you!

    • Wild Geese is a great anthology of her poems and holds some of my favorites. Enjoy!

    • Claire says...

      New and Selected Poems, Vol. 1 is also wonderful. I hope she brings to you the same love and light she has brought to me!

    • Hayley says...

      Agreed that Wild Geese and New and Selected Poems, Vol. 1 are both great places to start. Mary Oliver is such a light in my life, too! Love these, Mari!
