    " She stood midocean, seeking dry land." A touching account of enslaved's plight and helplessness. A great poem crafted by master craftsman. (Report)Reply

    Maya writes the history not only of the slaves but their owners [a hard word to say when related to ownership of a human being] as well and the society in which they moved trying to find a way to live even in the church of God perverted by mankind's prejudices and smallnesses. No wonder she was a phenomenal woman and poet. (Report)Reply
