Following the success of At Blackwater Pond, this second CD from best-selling poet Mary Oliver contains a selection of 37 previously published poems and four as yet uncollected, read by the poet in her steady, magnetic voice. Oliver recites from the full range of her poetry - from her classic nature writing, to her verses for her mischievous bichon Percy, to her ever-deepening spiritual poems. Many Miles will be a most welcome addition to the collections of her fans.

Thank you for being slow & speaking of beauty.
"The flowers I want to bring to you, still pale and wet" she says in her own voice, instead of touching finger over lines, and she does, a bouquet of reds and blues, brighter than any sunset. (Yes.)
For me it is the little mice running through her imagery, next to the pine cone she brings to our hands, opening in a happy place, as poems bring us.
I love how with her poetry she proves the delightful point that poetry is relevant, that all of us need poetry, if well written, or if clunky and in our own minds, we still need the poetry. I love how she enters my mind.
Invitation to Happiness
The poem about water, so relevant, so important, proving the vitality of mystery.
