"Mornings at Blackwater", by Mary Oliver

Updated: Mar 8

My dear friend Toni shared this with her Poetry Circle, me included, and I'm planning to read it next week during my online yoga classes.

Mornings at Blackwater

Mary Oliver


For years, every morning, I drank

from Blackwater Pond.

It was flavored with oak leaves and also, no doubt,

the feet of ducks.


And always it assuaged me

from the dry bowl of the very far past.


What I want to say is

that the past is the past,

and the present is what your life is,

and you are capable

of choosing what that will be,

darling citizen.


So come to the pond,

or the river of your imagination,

or the harbor of your longing,

and put your lips to the world.


And live

your life.


from Red Bird: Poems, Beacon Press, 2008
