So many literary and historical connections in here. The first poem had me floored because it reminded me so much of LEMONADE and Warsan Shire‘s poetry in it.

Felicity: Poems | Mary Oliver
Pickpick

I read this so quickly but it was because on every page, I felt like Oliver found me and wrote my thoughts. I used two of the poems in my husband‘s anniversary card for this year.

A book I‘d consider teaching for the Shakespeare references alone, not to mention character development and structure!
