    WoW! Maya, , , I really really touched by this poem and I love it. It speaks really load and clear though my ears hardly hear it, but my heart can see, feel, smell, taste and hear the the struggle within. Yeah, and though we might lack something, but this poem reminds us that we still have our pride. THUMPS UP! ! !

    I admit to not knowing who Maya Angelou is...shame on me...but learnging to develop on my own, my own poems...she is the first lady poet that as moved me to tears...we need her poems to grace the librarys of the world, she speaks from the heart..she makes you see what happens to women in her time her era...are there more like her out there in the world..shes brillant...shes intelligent...shes is as of this moment...my idol...is that a sin to have a person as an idol, no I dont think so, she shows that women can be who they want to be...so can we all.

I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,

The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my ...

Touched By An Angel

We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple

Love arrives
and in its train come ecstasies
