This is FEBRUARY and we are celebrating LOVE & BLACK HISTORY MONTH.  Now that's a two for one deal if I may say so myself.  What are you planning on doing for LOVE DAY?  Dinner for two?  Movie?  A weekend get away?  Candy?  Flowers?  When you think of BLACK HISTORY MONTH who do you think of?  Martin Luther King?  Maya Angelou?  I want to hear from you on both topics.  

Caged Bird

BY MAYA ANGELOU

A free bird leaps on the back of the wind and floats downstream till the current ends and dips his wing in the orange sun rays and dares to claim the sky. But a bird that stalks down his narrow cage can seldom see through his bars of rage his wings are clipped and his feet are tied so he opens his throat to sing. The caged bird sings with a fearful trill  of things unknown but longed for still and his tune is heard on the distant hill for the caged bird sings of freedom. The free bird thinks of another breeze and the trade winds soft through the sighing trees and the fat worms waiting on a dawn bright lawn and he names the sky his own But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams  his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream his wings are clipped and his feet are tied so he opens his throat to sing. The caged bird sings  with a fearful trill   of things unknown but longed for still and his tune is heard on the distant hill for the caged bird  sings of freedom.
