Poem for Maya Angelou


Little girl with braids akimbo
We see the wisdom in your eyes
That captures heart and hope and courage
When even voice falters.

When words return
They offer a singular understanding of individuality. Humanity.

Age and grace give you a place of honor and admiration deserved. Yet not the most important thing. For the light of a true voice remains well beyond faltering accolades.

In Memoriam
