When Death Comes...


When you visit my house, one of the first things you notice are all the
poems taped to my kitchen cupboards. I love sharing my love of poetry
with all who visit. This poem by Mary Oliver is taped to my cupboards. I
also featured it with my students this week. Last night I spoke to the
Rode Scholars telling stories from around the world. There is always
time for questions and one question was about my passion for stories,
poetry, literature....it simply lead me into the recitation of this
poem. So...I share it with you today. This version is Mary Oliver
reading her own work. The last line is the most poignant...
