    It's ok but seems to me a little superficial. It doesn't seem to demand much though, re-reading... (Report) Reply

    I love this poem, and I love this Poet but for some weird reason, this poem (as good as it is) , does not strike me as good as the #1 poem on this website.
    I have read many better ones such as I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, also by Maya Angelou.
    However,2 thumbs up, this poem is also extraordinary! (Report) Reply

    Woeful. Maya Angelou wrote a good book (Caged Bird) , but she is an embarrassingly bad poet. Immodest, too, it appears. (Report) Reply

    Oh, you are much more than that
    Swing in your hips, click of your heels
    Which maketh a man to lose his hat
    The truth be told - its your verse that makes him kneel (Report) Reply
