Summary
Beloved by her readers, special to the poet's own heart, Mary Oliver's dog poems open a window into her world. Collecting cherished poems together with new works, Dog Songs captures Oliver's relationships to the companions that have warmed her home and inspired her work. These poems of love and laughter, heartbreak and grief, are a testament to the power and depth of the human-animal exchange
