Rest In Peace, Dr. Maya Angelou

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.
