R. I. P. Maya Angelou, Beautiful Shining Soul.
The inspiration and hope which came from that overflowing heart, brilliant mind and cavernous, Delphic voice will resonate and echo.
A Rock. A River. A Tree.
. . .
Here, on the pulse of this new day
You may have the grace to look up and out
And into your sister's eyes, and into
Your brother's face, your country
And say simply,
With hope –
