Poetry Quote of the Day: More Mary Oliver

Have you noticed that readers have been graciously leaving other fabulous poetry quotes in the comments for all of us to enjoy? Here's one that J. Patrick Lewis gifted me with several days ago when I first posted some words from Mary Oliver:

"Poems are not words, after all, but fires for the cold, ropes let down to the lost, something as necessary as bread in the pockets of the hungry." ---Mary Oliver

Isn't that lovely?

This post is part of my Poetry Quote a Day series for National Poetry Month.

  1. I'm trying to catch up on my blog reading and now find out there are great poetry quotes sprinkled in the comments? Sigh.

    Now I'll have to read my fill. Thank you for Mary Oliver. I love her poetry.
