How Well Do You Know Me?


A Very Mary Variation of Allusion

How Well Do You Know Me?

if you are 

reading this blog

you should know 

that of all 

the poetic lines 

I love in this world

-and there are plenty-

very near the top 

of my list 

is the one 

that asks what it is 

that I plan to do

with my one wild and precious life

Borrowed lines taken from

these poems of Mary Oliver:

“If You are Holding This Book”

“The Summer Day”
