Mary Oliver Jane (1935-2019)


Sarah is one of my favorite bloggers (and a writer) who runs a blog “Extra Dry Martini“. Via one of her very interesting blog posts, she introduced a wonderful poetess (late) Mary Oliver Jane by quoting an awesome poem of hers;


There are moments that cry out to be fulfilled.

Like, telling someone you love them.

Or giving your money away, all of it.

Your heart is beating, isn’t it?

You’re not in chains, are you?

There is nothing more pathetic than caution

when headlong might save a life,

even, possibly, your own.

(Mary Oliver – ‘Felicity’ – 2016)
