The beauty and spirit of Maya Angelou's words live on in this complete collection of poetry, including her inaugural poem On the Pulse of Morning

Throughout her illustrious career in letters, Maya Angelou gifted, healed, and inspired the world with her words. Now the beauty and spirit of those words live on in this new and complete collection of poetry that reflects and honors the writer's remarkable life.

Every poetic phrase, every poignant verse can be found within the pages of this sure-to-be-treasured volume--from her reflections on African American life and hardship in the compilation Just Give Me a Cool Drink of Water 'fore I Diiie (Though there's one thing that I cry for / I believe enough to die for / That is every man's responsibility to man) to her revolutionary celebrations of womanhood in the poem Still I Rise (Out of the huts of history's shame / I rise / Up from a past that's rooted in pain / I rise) to her On the Pulse of Morning tribute at President William Jefferson Clinton's inauguration (Lift up your eyes upon / The day breaking for you. / Give birth again / To the dream.).

Maya Angelou: The Complete Poetry also features her final long-form poems, including A Brave and Startling Truth, Amazing Peace, His Day Is Done, and the honest and endearing Mother:

I feared if I let you go
