POEM OF THE DAY: REFUSAL BY MAYA ANGELOU

REFUSAL 

 

 

Beloved,

In what other lives or lands

Have I known your lips

Your Hands

Your Laughter brave

Irreverent.
Those sweet excesses that

I do adore.
What surety is there

That we will meet again,

On other worlds some

Future time undated.
I defy my body’s haste.
Without the promise

Of one more sweet encounter

I will not deign to die.
