Thirst, a collection of forty-three new poems from Pulitzer Prize-winner Mary Oliver, introduces two new directions in the poet's work. Grappling with grief at the death of her beloved partner of over forty years, she strives to experience sorrow as a path to spiritual progress, grief as part of loving and not its end. And within these pages she chronicles for the frst time her discovery of faith, without abandoning the love of the physical world that has been a hallmark of her work for four decades.

This is simply one of the most transcendent collection of poems I have ever read. Mary Oliver has to be both the primal observer of our time and the most gifted, beautiful wordsmith in praise of The Holy Trinity in all its guises. These poems are a source of light and love in the most humble yet powerful art. Thank you, Mary. Amen.
