    It's in the click of my heels,
    The bend of my hair,
    the palm of my hand,
    The need of my care,
    'Cause I'm a woman
    Phenomenally.
    Phenomenal woman,
    That's me.
    Beautifully written.

    It's in the arch of my back,
    The sun of my smile,
    The ride of my breasts,
    The grace of my style.
    I'm a woman
    Beautiful.

    It is one of the good poems by Maya Angelou giving the best caricature of a woman's beauty which can not be described in words but can be experienced in human life. (Report) Reply

    What I wouldn't give to have felt for just one day, the absolute belief in one's womanhood.. My regard for Maya Angelo is rock solid. This poem made me smile because all I could see was Maya walking down the street with her big white smile, strong female body and loving heart having fun.. This is a work that should be shown to all female students.. From quite young... I.love it... (Report) Reply

    Maya Angelou was such a woman who was really proud of her womanhood.She was confident of her inner strength and many talents.She hails that a woman be respected not only for her outward beauty, but for so many other thing she deserves.

    Now you understand
    Just why my head's not bowed.
    I don't shout or jump about
    Or have to talk real loud.
    When you see me passing
    It ought to make you proud.
    I say,
    It's in the click of my heels,
    The bend of my hair,
    the palm of my hand,
    The need of my care,
    'Cause I'm a woman
    Phenomenally.
    Phenomenal woman,
    That's me.
    - - - - - - - -It is really she.

    This poem is just - marvelous! The poet herself shows magically her secret but not everybody is able to get it understood! The recitition of Blessed Sherrif gives to this precious work of art a magnificent conclusion! Poet, poem and recitator are ehere together like the Father, the Son and the Holy ghost! Wonderful! ! !
