Design Quote for Friday

I love this pic of Dr. Maya Anjelou.Phenomenal Woman



Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.



I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size



But when I start to tell them,They think I'm telling lies.



I say, It's in the reach of my arms The span of my hips, The stride of my step,



The curl of my lips. I'm a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman,That's me.



I walk into a room Just as cool as you please,



And to a man, The fellows stand or Fall down on their knees.



Then they swarm around me, A hive of honey bees.



I say, It's the fire in my eyes, And the flash of my teeth, The swing in my waist,



And the joy in my feet. I'm a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman,That's me.



Men themselves have wondered



What they see in me.



They try so much But they can't touch My inner mystery.



When I try to show them They say they still can't see.



I say, It's in the arch of my back, The sun of my smile,



The ride of my breasts, The grace of my style. I'm a woman Phenomenally.



Phenomenal woman, That's me.



Now you understand Just why my head's not bowed.



I don't shout or jump about Or have to talk real loud.



When you see me passing It ought to make you proud.



I say, It's in the click of my heels, The bend of my hair, the palm of my hand,



The need of my care, 'Cause I'm a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman,



That's me.



Maya Angelou
