Notice

When loneliness comes stalking, go into
the fields, consider
the orderliness of the world. Notice
something you have never noticed before.

Mary Oliver, from section 12 of “Flare,” The Leaf and the Cloud: A Poem (Da Capo Press, 2000)

  1. Oh my gosh.. how IS it that when I go into a bookstore, I STILL do not think to look for Mary Oliver?? I need her like a body needs what staves off scurvy. Thank you for this sweet dose!
