The words of someone wise

Roll around in my brain

Like sweet rain water

On the hottest of days


I relish

The insight

Of what can be accomplished

With words


I completely


Myself over

To the quote


I hang on to

Each and every expression

As if it is the last


And I see with clarity

Why I love words

Because even though the body of life



The words

And the soul-full

Live on



Good-bye Maya Angelou. Thank you for the beautiful, wise words.
