Maya Angelou is amazing; one of my favourite poets.
A truly inspirational woman.
Wonderful choice for International Women’s Day.

I love this poem, and oh the people I wish I could’ve recited this to! This is the first of Maya Angelou’s poems I’ve come across, but I will definitely be looking out for her work in future. Brilliant! Thank you.

Please - more Maya Angelou. How can you not smile with her generous human smile, watching and listening to her read?
