    Looks as if mother nature is speaking to me. These lines
    say it beautifully: Fall gently, snowflakes
    Cover me with white
    Cold icy kisses and
    Let me rest tonight.
    Felt fulfilled reading this poem

    beautiful maya

    Sun, rain, curving sky
    Mountain, oceans, leaf and stone
    Star shine, moon glow
    You're all that I can call my own.

    Fall gently, snowflakes
    Cover me with white
    Cold icy kisses and
    Let me rest tonight.

    It looks as if the poem is extracted from a book of diary of a black woman in the old days of slavery where the hell of work was done by them. the poem is highway expressive.

    Well spoken and inspired - perfect description. She lays the undeniable truth down in such beautiful verse - you couldn't contradict it. (Report) Reply

    Lovely poem (and I really do love it) but surely there is a typo in the line:
    The can to be cut
    How do you cut a can? Surely it must be:
    The CANE (meaning sugarcane) to be cut

    A lovely tribute to women's work mingled with Nature elements revered by the Poet as the unique assets.
    Maya Angelou has left a deep trail in Poetry.
    Please, dear readers and colleagues,

    I got company to feed; with the muse of the role of a woman in the house. Nice work. (Report) Reply
