A few thoughts on Mary Oliver and Sylvia Ashton-Warner. “And you too can be carved anew by the details of your devotion” (Mary Oliver, 2004, p. 88).
Rest in peace, Mary Oliver. You were the first poet whose poetry I remembered by heart. The aforementioned quote is from her poetry book Long Life. Also, over the past two months, I have been reading Sylvia Aston-Warner’s autobiography, Myself. I was first interested in her education philosophy, but then became more interesting in her writing style. I’m writing these quotes down for I think I’ll return to them often.
