Extravagant Spirit

life:

Happy Birthday, Maya Angelou.

In 1997 LIFE asked the writer and poet Maya Angelou if she would consider writing on the topic of heroes and heroism for the magazine. Below are the two concluding stanzas.

These mothers, fathers, pastors and priests,
These Rabbis, imams and gurus,
Teach us by their valor and mold us with their courage.

Without their fierce devotion
We are only forlorn and only fragile
Stumbling briefly, among the stars.

Maya Angelou, “Extravagant Spirits”
