Today I join the hundreds who are paying some sort of tribute to Mary Oliver, who died a week ago. Here she is with Maria Shriver who was granted a rare personal interview. And the interview itself is here.
Finally, it's hard to pick just one of her poems, but the one I want to share today is this:
"What I Said at Her Service"
When we pray to love God perfectly,
surely we do not mean only.
(Lord, see how well I have done.)
