Maya Angelou’s Impeccable Conception

April 26, 2009

It’s poetry time. Here’s the always lovely, Maya Angelou

Impeccable Conception
By Maya Angelou

I met a Lady Poet
who took for inspiration
colored birds, and whispered words,
a lover’s hesitation.

A falling leaf could stir her.
A wilting, dying rose
would make her write, both day and night,
the most rewarding prose.

She’d find a hidden meaning
in every pair of pants,
then hurry home to be alone
and write about romance.
