Poem for March: Wild Geese

Read the poem by clicking somewhere on this sentence.

After somewhat dogging on the Mary Oliver book I read last month, I, of course, decided to memorize one of her poems this month. This poem is on the side of my friend Deborah’s refrigerator. It is also Responsive Reading #490 in the Unitarian Hymnal Singing the Living Tradition. I really like the first five lines, as they are good reminder for modern life.

  1. I really like the final words: announcing your place
    in the family of things. Something about that collectiveness makes me smile.
