Lovely tribute, Mary, it’s sad to think of Mary Oliver not being in this world any longer.

What perfect choice as a memorial tribute to an amazing woman.
I love everything Mary Oliver has written, but especially this poem. Thank you for publishing it, Mary Holland.

Her words live…and both Mary’s (O and H) continually teach me how to walk through this world, eyes and heart open.

Thank you Mary Holland for thanking our dear wordsmith Mary Oliver. Seeing your picture of the grasshopper brought tears to my eyes. I carry some of those words deep in my heart.
Thank YOU , Mary Holland!! Love, Pogo

The work of Mary Oliver was such an immense gift. She will be deeply missed. You chose the perfect poem. Thank you for living so observantly, and for sharing those observations with us!
What a lovely and perfect tribute. Thank you MH. I have found solace and inspiration in her words for so many years. What an amazing life and gift she shared w/ us all.

Lovely! thank you.

Thank you, Mary. Perfect photo and poem to honor such a great poet who is no longer writing for us today. How sad to lose her!

She offered us all the gift of her sight. I know that in moments of blindness I have come to he work for respite and restoration. I hope in the end, for Mary Oliver, it was ‘so much light wrapping around us.’ Thank you.
So sad. We really need people like her in this world.
She was one awesome, observant human being!
And this is my all time favorite Mary Oliver poem.

What a gorgeously colored insect! My favorite poem from my favorite American poet. I didn’t know till this post that she died. I’m glad I have many books of poetry by her.

The more times I read the poem, today, and it was many times, the more meaningful it has become to me. I need to read more of Mary Olivers’ poems

Thank you Mary, for this. I just read Mary Oliver’s obituary in the NY Times. What a great remembrance of her work and life. Hope to see you at our MHS reunion. Courtenay Compton McGowen

Thank you, Mary. Your photos and observations, like Mary Oliver’s, open all of our eyes and minds to more of the wonders around us and enrich our days. She will be missed. We are so lucky to have you with us!
