Brought together for the first time here are all of Maya Angelou's published poems -- including "On the Pulse of Morning," her inaugural poem -- in a handsome hardcover edition.
From Library Journal
From her earliest collection of poetry (Just Give Me a Cool Drink of Water 'fore I Diiie, LJ 10/15/71) to her latest (On the Pulse of Morning, delivered at the inauguration of President Clinton on January 20, 1993), Angelou's work never fails to grip the imagination. In this anthology, she comments on love, traveling, and aging.

You may have noticed that some of our books are identified as "deckle edge" in the title. Deckle edge books are bound with pages that are made to resemble handmade paper by applying a frayed texture to the edges. Deckle edge is an ornamental feature designed to set certain titles apart from books with machine-cut pages. See a larger image.

1.literary work in which special intensity is given to the expression of feelings and ideas by the use of distinctive style and rhythm; poems collectively or as a genre of literature:
You don't have to like it. It's for the people that it speaks to, and if it doesn't speak to you, find something that does. To say it wasn't my cup of tea is one thing, but to declare something bad because it wasn't done to your specifications says that you don't have the soul for art. You don't have the creativity mind to understand subjectivity. Art is subjective.
I personally love many if not most of these poems. Some of them I connected with right away and others didn't carry meaning until I was older. There are even some that were not for me, but they were no less art than the ones that did.
