Maya Angelou Fear Poems

  • 1.
    We, unaccustomed to courage
    exiles from delight
    live coiled in shells of loneliness
    until love leaves its high holy temple
    ...
  • 2.
    When I was young, I used to
    Watch behind the curtains
    As men walked up and down the street. Wino men, old men.
    Young men sharp as mustard.
    ...
  • 3.
    A Rock, A River, A Tree
    Hosts to species long since departed,
    Mark the mastodon.
    The dinosaur, who left dry tokens
    ...
  • 4.
    We, this people, on a small and lonely planet
    Traveling through casual space
    Past aloof stars, across the way of indifferent suns
    To a destination where all signs tell us
    ...
  • 5.
    There is no warning rattle at the door
    nor heavy feet to stomp the foyer boards.
    Safe in the dark prison, I know that
    light slides over
    ...
  • 6.
    Petulant priests, greedy
    centurions, and one million
    incensed gestures stand
    between your love and me.
    ...
  • 7.
    When great trees fall,
    rocks on distant hills shudder,
    lions hunker down
    in tall grasses,
    ...
  • 8.
    Tremors of your network
    cause kings to disappear.
    Your open mouth in anger
    makes nations bow in fear.
    ...
  • 9.
    A Rock, A River, A Tree
    Hosts to species long since departed,
    Mark the mastodon.
    The dinosaur, who left dry tokens
    ...

Matthew Prior Poem
Songs Set To Music: 16. Set By Mr. Smith
 by Matthew Prior

Accept, my Love, as true a heart
As ever lover gave;
'Tis free (it vows) from my art,
And proud to be your slave.

Then take it kindly, as 'twas meant,
And let the giver live,
Who with it would the world have sent
