Farewell, Dr. Maya Angelou…
“Listen to yourself and in that quietude you might hear the voice of God.”- Maya Angelou (May 23, 2014)
SYMPATHY (From the 3rd and Final Stanza)
I know why the caged bird sings, ah me,
When his wing is bruised and his bosom sore, –
When he beats his bars and would be free;
It is not a carol of joy or glee,
But a prayer that he sends from his heart’s deep core,
But a plea, that upward to Heaven he flings-
I know why the caged bird sings!
Poem by Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872-1906)
Thank you, Dr. Maya Angelou. Rest In Peace.
