Mary Oliver has inspired me for many years – ever since I read the phrase¬† from one of her poems ‘Wild Geese’ ; ‘…tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?’ I love her for her sense of wonder and devotion to the natural world and her ability to draw me into that wondrous devotion. What a legacy she has left us. This was a journal entry from several years back and I am still delighted with the look on that small child’s face.
