A book-length poem by the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winner explores the issue of persistent and passing things. 20,000 first printing.

Perseus Publishing
A Da Capo Original: An astonishing book-length poem in seven parts from the winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award.

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 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."
