The Crazy Woman.

I am loving this amazing American poet/author, not to forget her amazing works of literature. This is a poem I had a chance to read and once again my heart cheated on my other favourites. So, I daringly declare that I love this crazy woman too. 😀

I shall not sing a May song.
A May song should be gay.
I’ll wait until November
And sing a song of gray.

I’ll wait until November
That is the time for me.
I’ll go out in the frosty dark
And sing most terribly.

And all the little people
Will stare at me and say,
“That is the Crazy Woman
Who would not sing in May.”

Gwendolyn Brooks.

A new poet, and a new poem for me.

  1. I agree! Thank you, Moushmi, for sharing. 🙂

    Gwendolyn Brooks visited our university during the eighties and it was sheer magic. She read her poetry and spoke to students. She was older than the picture. It was one of those great moments I’ll never forget.

    Great post. And I love that poem. 🙂

  2. This poem has strong undercurrents!
    Sticking to her belief and not following the herd….
    Doing what she believes…..
    And people branding her a lunatic….
    But she knows they are “little ones” coz they are parochial!!

    Great lines!
    Afro American Woman, Patriarchal society, White majority…
    It all seems to fall in place…

    Thanks for sharing!!
