'Sadie and Maud' by Gwendolyn Brooks is one of the poems that I think women all around the world should have the pleasure of reading. It signifies the independent lives that women have and the joy that life might bring.
The Crazy Woman
I shall not sing a May song. A May song should be gay. I'll wait until November And sing a song of gray.
I'll wait until November That is the time for me. I'll go out in the frosty dark And sing most terribly.
