Caged Bird
By Maya Angelou

“The caged bird sings
with a fearful trill
of things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the caged bird
sings of freedom.

Life Doesn‘t Frighten Me
By Maya Angelou

“Shadows on the wall
Noises down the hall
Life doesn‘t frighten me at all
Bad dogs barking loud
Big ghosts in a cloud
Life doesn‘t frighten me at all.

I go boo
Make them shoo
I make fun
Way they run
I won‘t cry
So they fly
I just smile
They go wild
Life doesn‘t frighten me at all.”

#poemsbeforephones

Weaponxgirl I love her poems 😍 9mo
monalyisha This reminds me of A LOT of songs from the 90‘s (which makes me sad about my frame of reference 😅). Most notably, “Stranger by the Day” by Shades Apart & “Building a Mystery” by Sarah McLachlan. 😆 9mo

Still I Rise
By Maya Angelou

“You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still like dust, I‘ll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
‘Cause I walk like I‘ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.”

#poemsbeforephones

Phenomenal Woman
By Maya Angelou

“Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I‘m not cute or built to suit a fashion model‘s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I‘m telling lies.
I say,
It‘s in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I‘m a woman
Phenomenally,
Phenomenal woman,
That‘s me.”

Mehso-so

I rarely read poetry. I feel like it's impossible for me to get into. After seeing Netflix documentery about Maya Angelou I was so impressed by her that I wanted to try to read her poetry. I read the whole book but even though it was pleasant I didn't really get it. I think I'll try poetry again after a few years. Maybe it gets easier in time. 🤔

TrishB I think maybe you either like poetry or you don‘t 🤷‍♀️ or maybe just haven‘t found the poems for you yet! 12mo
Martta @TrishB That might be. I just loved Spoon river antology when I read it! It's categorized as poetry but is very different from traditional poetry. I think I need to search around that if I could find something similar. That might be my kind of poetry. 😊 12mo
TrishB That does seem to have a lot of love - I‘m not that familiar with it myself! 12mo
Martta @TrishB You should really try it if you get a chance! It's truly awesome! 😊 12mo

Nice work at my alma mater. Proud of them. (I mentioned this to my husband and he snorted and said "were they triggered by it?" and I think I'm gonna file for divorce)

kathedron That Kipling poem gets me riled up every time: of all the self-satisfied, complacent claptrap! I even wrote a rebuttal poem a few years back. 1y
Burghbookaddict My fiance says stuff like that occasionally, too. He's gotten better though since I started giving him a talking to every time he does though. It's probably more because he doesn't want to listen to me than because he realizes why he's wrong, but either way it shuts him up so mission accomplished lol. 1y
Hollie Good for them! 1y
Weaponxgirl I saw this last night and thought it was great! I hate the argument that some said on the news about how it's white washing history. Firstly history was already white washed and secondly no one is saying you can't or shouldn't read Kipling it's more about expanding the canon and seeing how history affected others too. 1y
arlenefinnigan @Weaponxgirl yeah the guy they have in that article saying "well Dickens was a racist, are they saying we shouldn't read Dickens?" - they're not saying you shouldn't read Kipling. They're saying they don't want one of his poems on a 7ft high mural at the Student Union entrance as a statement of their values. 1y

I'm trying to read poems.
Not succeeding that well.
How could I get under the poem spell?
What is the secret they hide so well?
Why can't they just come out of their shell?
Do you have any tips for me to tell?
🤔

LiteraryinLititz I‘m not super into poetry, but I really enjoy Billy Collins. His poetry is very accessible and full of images and ideas that seem familiar to me, as if I thought of them myself but never thought to write them down! 2y

After 20 years of wanting one, I have finally decided what my first tattoo will be. Either the whole first verse of this poem from Dr. Angelou or just a line like the one above. This poem has served to remind me through all of my struggles, no matter what they were, I have always made it through. Do y'all have literary tattoos you'd like to share the story behind? If so, tag me on your post and use the hash tag #LitTat. Image: Google Images.

All I can say in the wake of last night is this:

Hold those you love close that are reeling right now. Seek out those that have been marginalized by this election - your friends that are non-white, LGBTQ, differently-abled, and/or women who believe in reproductive justice. Tell them they matter, even though our democracy has told them otherwise. Tell them you'll fight for them.

I know it's true and it's something we all need to hear right now.

I've been inspired by several posts this morning. One of you darlings (@LauraBeth i think?) made a checklist that included picking a non-profit and volunteering your time, and i am grateful and thankful for the wise suggestion. I had a good wallow in despair, and i'm ready for action and forward-thinking. I will stand up for my gender, my heritage, and my sexuality today. i will not let the bigots in this country speak for me.

I listened to this short collection of poetry as an audiobook read by Maya Angelou herself. The poetry was amazing, and her reading of it even more amazing. She was engaging and mirthful and proud, and this was the perfect introduction to Maya Angelou. Read for the #diverseathon. [Finished Sept. 12, 2016] #audiobooks #poetry
