"Caged Bird" by Maya Angelou

The title and inspiration for this poem came from a line in Paul Dunbar's poem 

A beautiful poem by Dr. Maya Angelou who is a great human being and a great scholar.
I Hope I will be able to go back to normal routine by next week. Have a nice weekend.


  1. Hello:
    In the unlikely event of our being made Secretary of State for Education, a post we should hold jointly(!!), then we should make Maya Angelou's autobiographical work, 'I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings', compulsory reading for all secondary age pupils. And not a few adults too!

    1. I hope it becomes a likely event and you do this great deed. Ms. Angelou is an asset to the world of literature, but in our great US of A most of the people take her just an old black
      poet :-( I just cry when I read her words or listen to her talks

      Best wishes

  2. Gosh, it's been a long time since I read this from the very wise and gifted Maya Angelou! Thanks for sharing. Hope you are doing well!

  3. You are welcome. Maya is wonderful, apart from her poetry, even when she talks on simple issues,you just want to listen.

    I am doing much better, thanks for asking.

    Best wishes
