I'm tutoring a teen girl who loves Maya Angelou and writing her own poetry and I want to make her a book of poems to encourage/inspire her. What poems should I include?

I am tutoring a girl who loves Maya Angelou and likes to write poetry herself, and I want to give her a book of poems she might enjoy to encourage her interest in it. I'm going to print and bind it myself with hand-drawn illustatrations and cover decorations. I am familiar with Angelou's work but I was wondering what recommendations you could add.

I think what she likes about her poetry is primarily the free verse style and her personal relation to the words.

A short list of poems I'm thinking of including in the book:

Something by Lorca?

In the poem "Alone" by Maya Angelou, what is the meaning of β€œstorm clouds are gathering”?

Alone

Maya Angelou - 1928-2014

Lying, thinking

Last night

How to find my soul a home

Where water is not thirsty

And bread loaf is not stone

I came up with one thing

And I don't believe I'm wrong

That nobody,

But nobody

Can make it out here alone.

Alone, all alone

Nobody, but nobody

Can make it out here alone.

There are some millionaires

With money they can't use

Their wives run round like banshees

Their children sing the blues

They've got expensive doctors

To cure their hearts of stone.

But nobody

No, nobody

Can make it out here alone.

Alone, all alone

Nobody, but nobody

Can make it out here alone.

Now if you listen closely

I'll tell you what I know

Storm clouds are gathering

The wind is gonna blow

The race of man is suffering

And I can hear the moan,

'Cause nobody,

But nobody

Can make it out here alone.

Alone, all alone

Nobody, but nobody

Can make it out here alone.

Despite its thematic importance, "Still I Rise" by Maya Angelou is terrible poetry.

"Still I Rise"

Angelou takes on the weighty and important theme of African Americans' long fight for equality, but I think this poem is filled with lazy meter and moronic figures of speech. The similes alone are laughable if you ignore the poet's status as a national treasure and actually think about the comparisons she makes. How does a person walk like she has oil wells pumping in her living room? Is that even a thing? While we're at it, has anyone ever danced like she had diamonds in her crotch? I know, I know--they're not literal oil wells and diamonds. But surely this topic deserves a better poem to represent it.

When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time. - Maya Angelou

This morning I ran into one of my neighbors, who I thought I had built a good friendship with. We would run into each other on our walks and would have great conversations as we both share a love for literature. However, starting last fall there were a few times I would wave at her, but she ignored me. At first, I chalked it up to her not recognizing me from afar, but quickly I realized she was, in fact, ignoring me. She's a snowbird and went South during the winter and just returned.

Well, I ran into her this morning, and I asked her if I had done something to upset her. To my surprise, she said yes. She told me I had been unaccountably rude to her and had dismissed her during our last conversation. Believe me when I say I have absolutely no idea what I did because our conversations always lasted a long time since we typically walk 1-2 miles together. She admitted I didn't say anything rude or inappropriate, but she felt I had dismissed her quickly and with a bad attitude the last time we talked.

I apologized profusely and told her how much I valued what relationship we had formed, how I thought she was a lovely person, it was a misunderstanding, etc... in the end, she said it would be best if we never talked again. Before we walked away from each other though, she referenced Maya Angelou's 'On the Pulse of Morning' - telling me I should read it and giving the impression it would give me some sort of comfort.

I won't lie, I've read it and maybe because the situation is still so fresh, I don't understand her message. Does she want me to find some sort of 'peace'? She made it clear she doesn't want to speak again, so I'm confused by the overall message.

Either way, I came home and told my husband what occurred, but left out the part about the poem she told me to read. To my surprise, he told me this quote - 'When someone shows you who the are, believe them the first time' and when he mentioned it was from Maya Angelou, I was once again shocked. While I know this quote can have multiple meanings, in the moment it was the gentleness I needed and served as a good reminder about how people can be.

Just one of those situations that made me think how funny life is - after all, it's not everyday that people are quoting and referencing Maya Angelou to me.

β€œWhere’s Maya Angelou when you need him?” - Gene in β€œMy Fuzzy Valentine” S3 E13

Early in the episode when Bob is relaying all the romantic things he’s done for Linda, Gene says β€œYou are the worst storyteller. Where’s Maya Angelou when you need him?”

Maya Angelou is obviously a woman, so is this Gene being funny or a goof? It’s always bugged me (although I think the joke is hilarious).

A memory that reminds me of a Dr. Maya Angelou quote

Have you heard the famous quote by Dr. Maya Angelou ? When someone tells you who they are, believe them the first time. So here's what I think about when hearing that.

I have a memory of something random but profound my mother said to me and it speaks to how little value she had of me.

"No matter how I treat you, you will always be there for me."

When someone says that to you, they know what they are doing. They are more than aware of the harm they cause but they don't care. It's like a different crazy.

A lot of times, people will tell you exactly what they think of you and what they think your place is in their lives. They get too comfortable with you. They will treat you like garbage because they don't have the balls to do that to anyone else.

It's sad and infuriating that someone could think that way about me and think I don't have it in me to walk away. 15 years no contact and if she's still alive I hope she is replaying her quote in her head knowing her only child wants nothing to do with her. I hope the silence, isolation and misery is eating her alive.

My love for her was not a weakness. My care, concern, patience, respect and honor are not weaknesses. That I was able to keep those gifts under those circumstances was incredible because I could have turned out as ugly and violent as her.

Be careful how you treat your kids. We are human beings and we do have our limits. We love and care so hard. We put up with so much and our real crime is staying and seeing the good in people who don't have that in them.

Here's my quote :

"You can't always love the hate out of someone."
