Evening Poetry, April 3

In honor of National Poetry Month, and Mary Oliver, our beloved national poet who passed away in January, I will be posting one of her poems each evening in April. I am hoping to follow in the footsteps of Sarah Clarkson and read a poem on Instagram Live in the evenings as well…Follow me on Instagram to tune in.

Yellow

There is the heaven we enter

Through institutional grace

and there are the yellow finches bathing and signing

in the lowly puddle.

This poem can be found in Evidence.
