A Gift to Delight,
This review is from: Mother: A Cradle to Hold Me (Hardcover)
Written by Maya Angelou as a personal and touching Mother's Day salute, this tiny volume of poetry will truly make every day Mother's Day for any woman who reads it, be she a mother or a daughter. In a mere ten pages of text, the author traces and illuminates the complex mother/daughter relationship from conception ("I was created in you...you were created for me") through clinging, fretful babyhood, the turbulent teen years and adult understanding.
My favorite lines:
You were always
The heart of happiness to me,
Bringing nougats of glee,
Sweets of open laughter.
Angelou's little book is a gift to delight.
