Love Poems For The One You Love (Volume 1)
Keep in mind, this REALLY works well for men to keep in a hidden drawer to pull out and melt his love interest at various strategic times! Her heart will soften with these. For example, the aptly titled, Cuddle Time, might sound like a sort of syrupy rhyme but it's extremely touching, especially to a woman in love, and this one poem won a Valentine's Day competition for good reason. It's poetry with depth that the title belies a bit and causes its hearer or reader to be surprised in a very good way upon hearing the stanzas.
The poetry within here actually will boost your confidence and at the same time improve your lady's feeling of closeness and oneness with you. Stairway to Heaven is one such example that tells her exactly what she means to you in a way that a WOMAN relates to " Now with you I've entered Heaven's stairwell As a fan of love poetry and poetry in general, I am always looking for something new, insightful, and heart wrenching to read. At the recommendation of a close friend, I bought a copy of this poetry collection and I have been thoroughly impressed. There are incredibly tear jerking love poems in this book and not one falls flat.
The publisher of this book did a wonderful job of collecting a large number of truly high quality poetry into one book.
Few poetry compilations out there are so filled with quality poetry as this book is. I have recommended this book to all of my girlfriends because I know they'll love this book as I have. This is the type of book that you will take off the bookshelf every so often just to re-read it. I highly recommend this book to lovers of poetry--you won't be disappointed. See all 14 reviews.

Its been a long time since I read her last I do not feel like addressing her with a commonplace Miss Oliver Mary strips me of all my desperate strength, all the futile hard earned evolution and adornments I managed to soil myself with on the way, a Its been a long time since I read her last Mary strips me of all my desperate strength, all the futile hard earned evolution and adornments I managed to soil myself with on the way, and as I now sit back, softly murmuring the wise words of her love letters to life, I feel that natural nakedness again, all the excruciating otherness washed and anointed with tender images of the ridiculously simple,my hands are trembling as I type this,I cannot even begin to explain the kind of ancient guttural reflexes she elicits from me.
Eliot said the natural language of drama is poetry, I say the natural language of all manner of sentience is music, or anything that evokes it thereby reversing the normal psycho-epistemological process and reaching that raw core in us directly and irrevocably. She does that and stays there.
This is my first review here, and I wanted it to be for someone very very special,I read her back in those days when the idealism was just beginning to seep out,so here's to the memory of the 16 year old me and the trembling mass of inconsolable longing I have been thereafter,in memory of Mary the sensational lover,the ever faithful bride married to amazement, who always had room in her heart for the unimaginable,the soul born out of pure attentiveness,I don't want to know what path my life would have tread if you hadn't occurred to me..
Jan 20, Hanna rated it it was amazing. The selections in this book try to find answers to that question, primarily in the natural world. These are poems about nature and wonder, love and death, egrets and humpback whales. They aren't difficult poems, but straightforward in their precise, well-crafted imagery. There is a beauty in their apparent simplicity, in the observations of a poet clearly in love with "There is only one question: There is a beauty in their apparent simplicity, in the observations of a poet clearly in love with the natural world around her.
In her own words: When it's over, I want to say: I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms. From "When Death Comes" Feb 07, Doug Wells rated it really liked it. What a lovely writer of simple and elegant thoughts. This one ventured more towards nature and natural settings. Part of one, In Blackwater Woods, will forever stick with me: To live in this world you must be able to do three things: The precious poetry of Mary Oliver gets a long look in volume one of her selected poems.
These are classic poems, but Oliver's work stands the test of time and stays fresh better than almost any other poet. I thought it might have been better to be at a shorter length and go chronologically from her first poems to her later volumes, but I was pleasantly surprised at how more raw and opinionated her earlier works were. Reading those pieces at the end might be what I remember most from this. Mary The precious poetry of Mary Oliver gets a long look in volume one of her selected poems. Mary Oliver's poems show careful, broad skill, are beautifully focused, challenge the reader in the most thoughtful, humane ways and, in the end, are brimming over with peace.
Apr 19, Mark Robison rated it liked it. The book spans 30 years and goes backward chronologically from to She simply became a better poet after this time frame. Dec 02, Lauren Adams rated it it was amazing Shelves: Mary Oliver is the greatest of them all. I bookmarked about 25 poems in this collection that I plan to read frequently and already have. She writes mainly about nature, starting with the smallest details described in the most artistic way, panning out its and our purpose in this world. If you've ever wanted to get into poetry but roll your eyes Mary Oliver is the greatest of them all.
If you've ever wanted to get into poetry but roll your eyes at rhyme or forced abstract descriptions, I love Oliver's effortless approachability. Jul 27, mike rated it really liked it. View all 3 comments. An accessible, beautiful, meaningful collection of poetry that everyone should read. Oliver has a marvelous way of writing about the natural world and situating herself and us within it, asking the big questions of existence. This is a collection that I will be reading for the rest of my life. Jan 08, Kirby rated it it was amazing. I really loved getting to know Mary Oliver better through this collection.
I've never been particularly affected by nature poetry, but the way that she ruminates on the connections between humans and the natural universe is incredibly moving. I also like the way this volume was organized, with her most recent poems first then going back in reverse chronological order-- her newer work definitely has a more serene air of wisdom, peace, and stability than her earliest work, where you can see her tr I really loved getting to know Mary Oliver better through this collection.
I also like the way this volume was organized, with her most recent poems first then going back in reverse chronological order-- her newer work definitely has a more serene air of wisdom, peace, and stability than her earliest work, where you can see her trying to define her voice, trying out a variety of poetic forms and rhyme schemes. There were gems in each section, but in general, I liked the poems from Dream Work the most, which I felt dealt most explicitly with those spiritual, meaning-of-life concepts that I love so much.
I feel grateful that Mary Oliver has written approximately one million poems, so there is still tons of her work left for me to explore. Sep 04, Erika rated it really liked it. Few of these were compiled into this collection of poems from ; perhaps that is why, though I enjoyed it, I am, on the whole, lukewarm about it. Though Oliver likes to ponder things like the soul, the spirit, higher power, prayer--things from which I tend to shy away--she does so wit The first thing I read from Oliver was her collection "Why I Wake Early," which definitely reverberated in me.
Though Oliver likes to ponder things like the soul, the spirit, higher power, prayer--things from which I tend to shy away--she does so with a typically unoffending, child-like innocence that, coupled with her heavy focus on natural phenomena or minutia of her surrounding world, is non-presumptuous and not worth contesting with full force.
And the degree to which she is capable of observing the natural world in a manner suggesting she knows she is still a part of it--or knows she wants to be--something difficult to admit given the concrete jungles in which most of us tend to live--is nothing short of breath-taking and beautiful. I want my writing to mirror hers, though of course, being a different person with a different vision and different spiritual beliefs, this would be impossible. Some of my favorite poems collected here, which I highly recommend are: I guess I would sum up Oliver's writing as only as 'religious' as a poem of hers suggests: I would say that the search for a higher power is close to --gasp!
But that doesn't mean life, nature, our observations of it and how they are reflected in creation both living and artificial, concocted , are in anyway meaningless. And I think if Oliver were here right now to have a discussion about it with me, we'd see eye to eye on something as simple as 'a flower is a prayer' --and the realest, truest kind. Ten gold stars and a Pulitzer in addition to the one s?
Jun 27, Lexi rated it it was amazing. Oct 28, Arta rated it it was amazing Shelves: This was absolutely fantastic! I can't choose a favourite, really because I enjoyed every poem. There are so many quotable and beautiful parts. Most of them are influenced by nature which I personally really liked and thought was very fascinating.
They made me feel happy and sad at the same time.

True Love Poems
True love is measured by how deep you fall And judged by how low you are willing to crawl Just to save it and make it last It is determined by how willing you are to open up and offer your trust. An amazing poem that I can relate to. Especially the part of crawling to save it. Love is not giving up on each other no matter what tries to bring you two apart.
