Last week, I shared two poems by Alice Walker that, in Myra’s words, gave a “militant feel” to my Poetry Friday post. Today’s poem, however, has a softer, more delicate tone. This week has been quite exhausting for me, mostly because of lack of sleep. I was browsing my Facebook feed earlier and saw someone posted Wild Geese by Mary Oliver. Her words comforted me. Wild Geese wasn’t the poem I initially had in mind to share today but I thought perhaps some of us could use a big whiff of magic from Mary Oliver’s words.
Poetry Friday is hosted this week by Amy at The Poem Farm!
As an added bonus, here is a video of Mary Oliver reading Wild Geese. Enjoy!
