"The Uses of Sorrow", by Mary Oliver

A dear student reminded me of this poem a few days ago.


The Uses of Sorrow

by Mary Oliver



Someone I loved once gave me

a box full of darkness.


It took me years to understand

that this, too, was a gift.




In nature, death is only transformation. Belmont, CA, 2023
