The Leaf And The Cloud

A Poem

With piercing clarity and craftsmanship, Mary Oliver has fashioned an unforgettable poem of questioning and discovery, about what is observable and what is not, about what passes and what persists. As the U.S. Poet Laureate, Stanley Kunitz, has said: “Mary Oliver’s poetry is fine and deep; it reads like a blessing. Her special gift is to connect us with our sources in the natural world, its beauties and terrors and mysteries and consolations.” The Boston Globe has called Mary Oliver “a great poet . . . she is amazed but not blinded.” And the Miami Herald has said: “The gift of Oliver’s poetry is that she communicates the beauty she finds in the world and makes it unforgettable.”
