A Poet Reflects

Two or three times in my life I discovered love.
Each time it seemed to solve everything.
Each time it solved a great many things
     but not everything.
Yet left me as grateful as if it had indeed, and
thoroughly, solved everything.

—Mary Oliver, section 5 of “Sometimes” in Red Bird (Beacon Press, 2008)
