These poems are a testament to the good things and the hard things in our lives coming together to form something sweet and wonderful as ever, like honey. There is a beautiful mix of themes in this book, but all come together to talk about the everyday moments of life—the hard, the simple, and the beautiful, and how they come together to form life.

Published: Beacon Press - April 8th, 1992

Mary Oliver, in her gentle way, encourages us to pause and notice the world around us. She writes brilliantly about small but beautiful moments, really bringing them to life before our eyes. Reading Mary Oliver reminds me to stop for a moment, go for a walk, sit under a tree or beside a river, and just be.
