A deceptively simple collection of poems and a couple of essays covering birds - most types and nearly all were joyous encounters.
Between poems was a lovely illustration of a single feather.
Some in perfect condition, others quite rumpled and another quite bedraggled.

Among the poems were celebrations of the fierce avian predators, the common starling, and pigeon, plus one essay was about a gull found injured on the shore.

If I had been exposed to poetry like this in primary school, who knows whether I would have discovered her earlier! Thank goodness for the 2019 Ten to Try challenge at my public library.

Mary Oliver has the ability to write so beautifully about a walk in the woods, birds or any small part of daily life we may overlook or take for granted. Illustrations nice too!
