    When I see Maya Angelou's poetry (to dare call it such) I feel like clawing my eyes out.

    Why must we compare? Maya is a poet...period. She is black...period. She is a woman...period. These are all incidental attibutes. What has it got to do with her poetry which, I am sure, was never written in a spirit of competition with other poets. She is good and that is it. Let's just accept that and forget the rating of #1.

  • Rookie Reinier Steven Van Ramshorst (2/22/2013 7:55:00 PM)

    She's not bad. Her #1 position is laughable. It's a symptom of our present tendency of totalitarian politization and the primacy of context over content. Stop talking about blackness and women and poverty, tell me why this human being can write.

    I've read Woman Work and a woman is never done cause they have mouth to feed, house to clean tend to there men's needs, tend to the sick etc...

    to Chris H, Allan Rofer, and Joe Walter, , - - u guys are just jealous that shes WAY WAY better than u guys, u have no right to judge someone like this. Is it becuz she's a woman, because she's black? just fudge off, JUST DEAL WITH IT, im SURE u would not like me to say ur all girly bcuz ur researching peoms, which is at the least a girly thing expecially peoms by women

    thx very much, .........and boys......TAKE a step back the GIRLS ARE PHENOMENAL

    A phenomenal poet who has inspired many lives through her literature that walks into our everyday life and points out the things that our multi-tasking lives have so little to catch up on. Her poems educate our classrooms of trials, conflict, struggle and hope and at the end give us a lesson that dresses the naked eyes with a solid Armour of confidence. All in all I am grateful we have a stalwart to have graced our time of living!

    Well to this Joe Walter' she is. Obviously a wonderful stutter so step off. She's first on the list. Some poeple thinks better than Shakespeare. I bet she's a million times better than u. I bet you couldn't write a good poem to save your life. So don't judge some one else.

    (Btw, there are people who think her poems are like art in words.)

Best Poem of Maya Angelou

Phenomenal Woman

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
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 ...

The Detached

We die,
Welcoming Bluebeards to our darkening closets,
Stranglers to our outstretched necks,
Stranglers, who neither care nor
care to know that

We pray,
Savoring sweet the teethed lies,
