Summary (From the publisher):

Incredible Good Fortune is Ursula K. Le Guin's sixth collection of poems, spanning the years 2000 to 2005. These poems by the celebrated author of Always Coming Home and The Language of the Night showcase Le Guin's many facets as a writer. Passionate, humanitarian, and sensuously aware of the world's vitality, Le Guin's work can also be melancholy, playful, and dreamlike. Full of insight, humor, and wisdom, this collection includes close observations of day-to-day life, reflections on childhood and growing older, and explorations of myth and fable.
