Reading this first poem titled Don't Worry on the very first day of a new year Makes you think about the urgency of the resolutions whispered before midnightMary Oliver's voice feels familiar as if you have been listening to it since the moment you took your very first breath Inner peace in the middle of the turmoil that is life that's how I would describe her voice There's a wiseness to it Not self proclaimed though There's respect to each herhis own pace She sees with her heart her hopes and fears and she then lays these portraits gently on the page with the help of wordsOnly if there are angels in your head will you ever possibly see oneIf I were you I would buy this book and read a poem a day I believe it might be one of the ingredients of the recipe to happiness And if you don't find it in her voice do not give up One will come that will resonate with youAnd just like that like a simple neighborhood event a miracle is taking placeI honestly believe Felicity is the reassuring hand as you take a leap of faith as you dive in head first into the immense universe that is life Even through the darkest moments it will guide youEvery day has something in it whose name is Forever “Do the trees speak?Do the trees speak back to the wind when the wind offers some invitational commentas some of us do? Do they also talk to the sun?I believe so And if such belief need rest on evidenceLet me just say sometimes it’s an earfulBut there is if you can hear the trees in their easy hoursof course you can also hear them later crying outat the sawmill”I can no longer clearly see the trees but I can hear them rustle in the wind I can smell them and feel their shade and most of all I can feel the leaves their texture and their shape Aand I can almost tell you by their shape what kind of trees they are If only I try I can also hug the trees and wish them a long life free from all dangers for we must protect what has been lovingly given to us It seems you love this world very much“Yes” I said “This beautiful world”And you don’t mind the mind that keeps youbusy all the time with its dark and bright wonderings?“No I’m uite used to it Busy busyall the time”And you don’t mind living with those uestionsI mean the hard ones that no one can answer?“Actually they’re the most interesting”And you have a person in your life whose handyou like to hold?“Yes I do”It must surely then be very happy down therein your heart“Yes” I said “It is” Beautiful touching Important read the edit below this after rereadingNote to self and others read this when blindly in love If read when harboring a momentary distaste for love this book may cause you to think tell me about love later Mary Oliver because right now I don't entirely believe youEdit read this again but read it about yourself It sometimes takes another try ❤️ Always perfect when I want to read slowly'Dont WorryThings take the time they take Don'tworryHow many roads did StAugustine followbefore he became St Augustine?'
