I love exploring old cemeteries too. I'll look for Mary Oliver's poems.

I have several of Mary Olivers books. I just love her poetry. As to cemeteries, well, I am often drawn to them. The stones, the stories thought about when reading inscriptions. An old friend of mine has "I told you I was sick" on his grave stone. I wonder what people will think of this in the future. He was quite a character.


A friend introduced me to Oliver's poetry a number of years ago in a nature drawing class. It was the best thing that happened in the class!

Just think of all the people who will see your friend's gravestone and be amused. A light moment when perhaps they are having a difficult time themselves.
