    Tears fall
    As one now rises
    Her life poetry
    In action
    Her words
    Poetry personified
    Many minds open
    By the lyrical dissertations
    That emanated from the mouth
    of this woman
    Who rose from meager beginnings
    Into a phenomenal ending
    Laying
    The foundation
    For so many
    To walk into path
    Of the poets
    Painting panoramic pictures
    With verbiage that invokes
    Imagination
    Captivating
    The hearts and minds
    Of the
    Rich
    Famous
    Presidential
    Forever
    Exalting
    Her
    Race
    Through
    The immortality
    Of words
    Championing the call for equality
    With
    Pen and paper
    Yes now she rises
    Above
    The mundane
    And truly
    Has a song to sing
    Because
    The caged bird
    Has been set free

    Phenomenal Woman, indeed.
    as we weep for a voice no longer heard
    such precious words she's offered over years
    of growth and tears and smiles and joy
    each passage written that we enjoy
    to lose such a treasure
    one who brought so much pleasure
    to so many...for so long
    so...Strong.

    but
    as
    you
    say,
    The caged bird
    Has been set free.

    May she Rest In Peace.

    Wonderful peace, B.

    and when I knew better
    I did better."
