    In my wv history I have to research you along with some other people. One poem that makes me want to read more of them is A Summer Love Poem. it makes me wonder if what i do is right or wrong. if who i love is just a friendship that i know may know may not last but want it to. and if i should rethink what i have done before.

Best Poem of Nikki Giovanni

Knoxville Tennessee

I always like summer
you can eat fresh corn
From daddy's garden
And okra
And greens
And cabbage
And lots of
And buttermilk
And homemade ice-cream
At the church picnic
And listen to
Gospel music
At the church
And go to the mountains with
Your grandmother
And go barefooted
And be warm
All the time
Not only when you go to bed
And sleep
