What Makes Woman Beautiful!


I ran across this poem, by Maya Angelou. It made sense to me. I have never considered my self to be some extraordinary looking woman, and yet seem to attract people. When I read it, I realized, what I had always suspected. That beauty and attraction come from inside, of course, but the way she describes it, makes it easier to understand. Maya Angelou, has a way with words, and in this poem, based on herself, I can also see me! Hope you enjoy it!

 

  Phenomenal Woman 

 

Pretty woman 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,

zthe curl of my lips,

I’m a woman

Phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman,

That’s me.

 

I walk into a room

Just cool as you please,

And to a man,

The fellows stand or

Fall down to their knees.

Then they swarm around me,

Ahive of honey bees.

I say,

It’s in the fire in my eyes

, And the flash of my teeth,

The swing of 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 mustery.

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 in 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 in my hair,

the palm of my hand,

The need for my care.

‘Cause I’m a woman

Phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman,

That’s me.

 

Hope you enjoyed it. Been real busy lately, have so much to do, and time is always a factor. I do plan to catch up with myself, very soon! Sending my love to you all as always, diana
