Why The Bird Sings: A Quote


A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.” ~Maya Angelou

We, as the artist and writers, the dreamers of the world, share a beautiful thread of comradery with the birds who so sweetly sing. We write because we have a story to tell. We create because we have a vision.

We don’t need to have the answers in order to share something beautiful.

  1. Thank you for that. Maya is one of the sweetest spirits I have every read. My introduction to her was when she read the inaugural poem for Bill Clinton in 1992. Before then, I had never heard of her, but from then till she died (and I cried that day), she has poured out some of the most beautiful words from the heart that ever moved me. I still read her “On the Pulse of the Morning” aloud before my students every year.

    1. Reading your comment put a smile on my face. I am glad this moved you as it did. Maya Angelou was such a beautiful weaver of words. I think it’s awesome that you share her art with others. She is still such a great inspiration.

      1. I will go and take a look. Thank you for sharing. I am also inspired to go and read more of her work. I think I began to admire her several years ago when she did an interview on Oprah. Her poise and grace was breathtaking.
