In Dog Songs, Mary Oliver celebrates the special bond between human and dog, as understood through her connection to the dogs who across the years accompanied her on her daily walks, warmed her home and inspired her work. The poems in Dog Songs begin in the small everyday moments familiar to all dog lovers and become, through her extraordinary vision, meditations on the world and our place in it. Dog Songs includes visits with old friends, like Oliver’s most beloved dog Percy, and introduces still others in poems of love and laughter, heartbreak and grief.

Throughout, the many dogs of Oliver’s life merge as fellow travellers and as guides, uniquely able to open our eyes to the lessons of the moment and the joys of nature and connection.
