“I did think, let’s go about this slowly.

This is important.  This should take

some really deep thought.  We should take

small thoughtful steps.

But, bless us, we didn’t.”  –Mary Oliver

of someone you love,

including all its expressions

in privacy and in public,

trees, I think,

are the most beautiful

forms on earth.

Though, admittedly,

if this were a contest,

the trees would come in

an extremely distant second.” –Mary Oliver

careful and smart in matters of love,’

who says, ‘I’m going to choose slowly,’

but only those lovers who didn’t choose at all

but were, as it were, chosen

by something invisible

and powerful and uncontrollable

and beautiful and possibly even


only those know what I’m talking about

in this talking about love.”  –Mary Oliver

― Nicholas Sparks
