Maya Angelou taken to Los Angeles Hospital? Phenomenal Woman

A friend telephoned this morning and told me that Maya Angelou had been taken to Los Angeles Hospital. We, a group of friends, went to hear Maya speak last year. All hardcore, diehard fans, we ingested every poetic and meaningful word that she uttered.
Just in case you’d heard the same rumor, I am now happy to report that it is not true. Nevertheless, I do love Maya and I’d like to share one of poems with you.
Phenomenal Woman
Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can’t see.
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
‘Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
Spread the word … NOT the Icing!
Janice

    Apparently, TMZ reported this and CNN followed up by saying the report was a mistake, that Dr. Angelou was never in LA last night and is safe at home in St. Louis.

    Thank you for her wonderful poem. I also have heard Dr. Angelou speak and she is amazing women and wonderful to listen to.

    complement me things like that,i would give him or anyone a big tight
    hug!One’s impact is more important than just existence,but most of all
    beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder,now,that’s more appropriate
    to say,lol.
