She who reminded us of the strength of loveliness

Mary Oliver, poet of the rugged soul, champion of kindness, lover of the world’s broken beauty. 1935-2019.

I wanted
The past to go away, I wanted
To leave it, like another country…

And nobody gets out of it, having to
Swim through the fires to stay in
This world.

— Mary Oliver
