When I was told I was to die
Such beauty I witnessed in the sky
Birds dancing round and round
A flurried dance of feathers
Pale as the clouds
Such beauty I witnessed
I want to die like a bird in autumn
In full flight
Sweet with song

    What a wonder that I fall upon this page to find my sister Michele talking with Dr. Angelou. My heart is happy to hear your voice. It is soft like I know your touch would be – as I find your heart to be – and only through the strength of softness do I find now that I will be able to hear your voice as I continue to read your words…they become one in beautiful poetry.
