His Day is Done-Dr. Maya Angelou


Over the weekend, we played a travel game where you picked a letter of the alphabet and named any person who’s (first or last) name started with that letter.  We were on the letter M for a long time and I said, “Maya Angelou“.  None of the people I was playing with had heard of her, which didn’t totally surprise me since they were from  The Czech Republic, Sweden, and Germany.  The one girl from The Czech Republic knew plenty of poets, authors, and painters I didn’t know off the top of my head…so, no shade.  I still thought I would take the occasion to share not only her poetry and voice but more specifically this poem, which memorializes Nelson Mandela.
