Oh, Mary Oliver…

How sweet can this job be? When I arrived at the Galaxy Bookshop today, my co-worker handed me an advance reading copy and said, This is the important thing for today. You need to read this.

Felicity by Mary Oliver.

My fellow bookseller said, Some of these poems she’s created just for me.

And then she promptly showed me a poem I knew was written solely for me. But maybe you, too?


No I’d never been to this country
before. No, I didn’t know where the roads
would lead me. No, I didn’t intend to
turn back.

–– Mary Oliver
