Celebrate National Poetry Month with us and enjoy a Poetry Per Diem each day for the month of April!
Today’s poem is from Maya Angelou’s book of poems titled The Complete Collected Poems of Maya Angelou.
A day
drunk with the nectar of
weaves its way between
the years
to find itself at the flophouse
of night
to sleep and be seen
no more.
Will I be less
dead because I wrote this
poem or you more because
you read it
long years hence.
This book can be found in the Island Free Library
collection, upstairs under call number 811.5 ANG.
Stay tuned for another poem tomorrow!
