    I love to hear the poetry of this great poet. She along with several other African American writers are the inspirations to my writing. I too write poetry and it's my passion since the young age of 8. I have always said and dreamed of being a best selling author of original poetry of all sorts. I feel this is my gift from God and it should be shared with the world. Thanks Maya Angelou you really have helped pave the way for many like me. GOD BLESS.

    God has sent an Angel to us
    to give her affection and love
    with her delightful poem
    Her name is
    The High Respected Maya Angelou
    May God bless her a long
    and joyful life.
    With kindest regards

    The black American man makes the black American woman maybe not superfluous but just a little kind of decoration. Not really important to turning around the wheels of the state. Well the white American woman has never been able to feel that way. No white American man at any time in our history in the United States has been able to feel that he didn't need that white woman right against him, shoulder to shoulder.

    Swap the words 'black' and 'white' and you have a quote from that 'phenomenal' racist, Maya Angelou.

    I agree with Maya Angelou that the current inscription on the MLK memorial makes King sound like an arrogant twit. However, I think the solution is EASY. Fill in the first two words (I WAS) so that the fix reads: A DRUM MAJOR FOR JUSTICE, PEACE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS. It seems to me that filling in those two words would be an inexpensive and proper fix. Further, even if someone who carefully looked at the fix could barely make out the old “I WAS” it would be a point of conversation and history and a further tribute to a brilliant hero. Happy MLK weekend! - Jerry Gorski

Touched by an Angel

We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight
to liberate us into life.

Love arrives
and in its train come ecstasies
