A Celebration of Rising “Joy”!
dr. maya angelou
april 4, 1928 ~ may 28, 2014
I know what the caged bird feels, alas!When the sun is bright on the upland slopes;When the wind stirs soft through the springing grass,
And the river ows like a stream of glass;When the rst bird sings and the rst bud opes, And the faint  perfume from its chalice steals — I know what the caged bird feels!
I know why the caged bird beats his wingTill its blood is red on the cruel bars;
For he must y back to his perch and cling
When he fain would be on the bough a-swing;And a pain still throbs in the old, old scars And they pulse again
with a keener sting — I know why he beats his wing!I know why the caged bird sings, ah me,When his wing is bruised and his bosom sore, —
When he beats his bars and he would be free;It is not a carol of joy or glee,
But a prayer that he sends from his heart’s deep core, But a plea, that upward to Heaven he ings — I know why the caged bird sings!
– Paul Laurence Dunbar  Writer, 1899
