Nikki Giovanni Pens Poem for Maya Angelou

“At Times Like This”

Iconic poet and educator Nikki Giovanni pens piece for Maya Angelou.

(for Maya Angelou)

At times like this

We measure our words

Because we are

Measuring a life


A friend was not

Lost nor did she

Transition she



We recognize a good

Life was lead a

Generous heart

Ceases to beat

A hearty laugh will

No longer be Heard
