Hey there everyone.
I’m participating in NaPoWriMo 2020, if you aren’t following the NaPoWriMo website already then go check it out at www.napowrimo.net.
Today I have written a romantic found poem celebrating women by using the incredibly inspirational Maya Angelou as my own inspiration.
I used her poem “Phenomenal Woman” and you can read the lyrics to her sassy poem below.
Finally, here is my own found poem, thank you for reading and good luck with all of your NaPoWriMo adventures throughout this month!
“The Need for a Woman” by David Ellis
Women – wonder where secret lies?
It’s in the reach, the span, the stride
The curl of lips
A woman that’s just as cool as you please
Their honey, the fire in eyes
The swing and joy, in a woman
They see so much inner mystery
Try to show the sun of smile
The ride of grace, of style
A woman you understand, shout about
To make you proud
The need for a woman
