The Cricket and the Rose

In fall
the cricket
beneath the rose bush

as the roses fall
to the very ground
that is his kingdom also.
So they're neighbors,

one full of fragrance,
the other
the harper
of a single dry song.

We call this time of the year
the beginning of the end
of another circle,
a convenience

and nothing more.
For the cricket's song
is surely a prayer,
and a prayer, when it is given,

is given forever.
This is a truth
I'm sure of,
for I'm older than I used to be,

and therefore I understand things
nobody would think of
who's young and in a hurry.
The snow is very beautiful.

Under it are the lingering
petals of fragrance,
and the timeless body
of prayer.

~ Mary Oliver ~

(New and Selected Poems Volume Two)
Hi Marcyjill
Just remember the Early Reviewers program is for Uncorrected Galleys. I understand Rocket Man was not for you. But these galleys were uncorrected and it is stamped on the first page of the book. Take care.
I'm going to build a shack out of my books and live in it.
Just wanted to let you know that I finsished both books you got me for the SantaThing. I liked the Secret History a lot, although I thought the author was a little wordy. I was hesitent to read Anansi Boys, mainly cause of the mass paperback format, but WOW, that was a fun read. In fact, I've already purchased another Gaiman book, American Gods.

Anyway, just wanted to thank you again for the books!

I did get the books, thanks. And I'm looking forward to reading them. I thought SantaThing was a lot of fun, both in trying to find the right books for someone else, and in having someone try to pick books for me. I hope they do it again next year.

I'm glad you got the 2nd one. I know the first was a reach (let me know if it was any good - don't worry, I won't be hurt! After all, you're the innocent victim in this one!). That's why I really wanted to find a chick lit book you'd like as well. I feel confident about that one - but you can also let me know if that wasn't great.
Thanks for being my LT friend - and stay in touch!
I'm glad you received the book - you should have received two books, so I hope you did!

My Santa Thing was really fun, too! It was interesting to realize that she chose somthing that looks like I'll really like it.

What a fun time, right? :)

Thanks for the note!
