Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
With the passing of Maya Angelou earlier this week, it only seems right that today’s poem be from this amazing writer. On the Pulse of the Morning is one of my favorites by her. I hope you come to love and enjoy it as much as I do.

Hosts to species long since departed,
Marked the mastodon.
The dinosaur, who left dry tokens
Legendary author Maya Angelou hosted “An Evening With Maya Angelou” for a sold-out crowd at the Andrews Amphitheatre at the University of Hawaii at Manoa on June 21, 1994, according to the magazine Malamalama.
The following is an excerpt from the magazine’s coverage of the event:
"Angelou spoke of the importance of romantic love and self love, quoting other poets—both famous and obscure—as often as she did her own work. ‘You need to know African-American poetry, poetry on love, you need to know it,’ she told an audience whose enthusiasm was undaunted by rain. ‘Words are music.’"
After the program, Angelou was presented with the first-ever UH Medal of Distinction.
The medal was established to honor individuals of national and international stature for lifetime accomplishments, a record of distinguished service to the community and/or outstanding scholarly achievements.
With Memorial Day tomorrow, I thought this poem by Eugene Field was well suited to the moment.

My friend Tara is one of the funniest people I know and I’ve always thought that she would make a great comedian. She is a publicist by trade but I’m so proud of her for also pursuing her talent for comedy.
