    Jeez, this is the best poem ever? It's just about a woman being really full of herself, and didn't find the descriptions very emotive or interesting either, just repetitive. (Report) Reply

    I really liked, enjoyed the beautiful poem and the subject in particular and its word power and peculiarities of the great poet who is no more. It is beautiful to hear, happy to learn, and understand and I think this is wonderful with so much imaginations and facts as well.The poem is a truth of woman character in particular and it is having such a universal importance and poetic importance that I think with best of emotions to have an opportunity to read it.

    Maya, L’oiseau en Cage, s’est Envolée

    Le bel oiseau fier,
    En cage, qui chantait si bien hier,
    S’est envolé.
    L’écrivain, qui écrivait en beauté,
    Avec une finesse phénoménale
    Et une distinction magistrale,
    Est parti vers l’au-delà.
    C’était une belle Négresse,
    Une célèbre Poétesse.
    Elle a franchi le voile parsemé,
    Ça et là,
    D’un parfum éthéré.
    Le monde entier est choqué,
    Le monde est attristé,
    Par cette fuite, par ce départ.
    Maya Angelou était une héroïne,
    Qui partageait son esprit et ses parts,
    Avec des étrangers, copains et copines.
    Elle sera désormais manquée pour son style,
    Sa fierté, son intelligence, sa patience, ses avis,
    Sa persévérance, sa bravoure, sa compréhension,
    Ses opinions, sa littérature, ses façons,
    Sa sagesse, son amour et sa bonté.
    Dans mon cœur, elle a une place réservée.
