"The World I Live In", by Mary Oliver

Updated: Sep 25, 2021

How does she keep doing this? Thank you Mary Oliver.


THE WORLD I LIVE IN


I have refused to live

locked in the house of

reasons and proofs.

The world I live in and believe in

is wider than that. And anyway,

what's wrong with Maybe?


You wouldn't believe what once or

twice I have seen. I'll just

tell you this:

only if there are angels in your head will you

ever, possibly, see one.
