      • poem
        By Robert Frost
        Spades take up leaves
        No better than spoons,
        And bags full of leaves
        Are light as balloons.
        ?
        I make a great noise
        Of rustling all day
        Like rabbit and deer
        Running away.
        ?

        And putting things away.

        And remembering ...
        Remembering,...

        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...
