A Bride

“When it’s over, I want to say: all my life
I was a bride married to amazement.
I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.

When it is over, I don’t want to wonder
if I have made of my life something particular, and real.
I don’t want to find myself sighing and frightened,
or full of argument.

I don’t want to end up simply having visited this world.”
― Mary Oliver

  1. Mary Oliver is fantastic, and this photo essay perfectly captures the mood of her poem. It has been a while since I dove into her writing, perhaps this will inspire a revisit. Love your blog!
