A bride married to amazement

A friend recently introduced me to the poems of Mary Oliver I hope this inspires you like it did for me:

“When it is 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.”
