Speaks to humankind. Come to me, here beside the River…
Plant yourself beside me, here beside the River.
–Excerpt from “On the Pulse of the Morning”
Red Wolf Poems remembers Maya Angelou, who passed into the great beyond on May 28, 2014. She was 86 years old.
She has given us so much. For some poets, hers were the first words of poetry ever read. With her words, she celebrated individuals, gave encouragement, shed a light on wrongs and injustice, and educated many. By shedding light on the inner life and environment of herself — one African-American woman — she reminded us of our common humanity.
Poets, feel free to leave your thoughts, prayers, poetry, or anything else here.
