“Why I Wake Early” (poem by Mary Oliver)

On this final #WeeklyWednesday of National Poetry Month, I thought I would share this lovely work by Mary Oliver. I hope it brightens your day!

“Why I Wake Early” is also the title of a collection of poems by Mary Oliver. I recently bought this copy on Amazon and am really enjoying it!

The video I used comes from a vacation several years ago in New Zealand’s stunning South Island. I would highly recommend visiting, both for the natural beauty and the cultures you’ll find in NZ!

Thank you for watching, and I hope this finds you well, particularly during this challenging time for our world! ?
