The rhyme, the rhythm, the melody, by Jove, Maya, they speak to me, so strongly, I wrote 4 poems in that style. (Well, yes, I definitely tried.) I just considered it one of those college course music studies, where I used to write in the style of Bach, etc.)

Serendipidy: I found the set in the Military Library at Hurlburt( your tax dollars at work! ) and kept on listening and listening, getting more and more the shades and undertones.One must listen to poetry often, as new meanings appear that were not evident with just ones-lightly-over listening! I am buying my OWN set. And there is this ebony sister I feel a strong kinship with, who will get her own set from me, too.

I love her poems, born as most great writing and poetry is , - born out of joy and pain. (Schubert: Out of my great sorrow and pain, write I the little songs.) I love her sonorous voice. Reminds me on Odetta.

I am glad I "met" her. As I, as a white girl, adore Opra, so I just had to know why Opra admired Dr. Angelou. And I am glad I found out. (...) Karla (Katrina Kwiatkowska) (...)

Angelou is so amazing and to hear her read her own poetry is a gift in itself. Her voice is so beautiful and her poetry so moving. Everyone who loves poetry should own this CD.
