2nd Project at Scrap That Poetry - Maya Angelou Poem

Here are 2 projects I did for the 2nd part of the month as Guest Designed over at Scrap That Poetry. I really enjoyed being a Guest Designer over there. A great group of ladies and FUN ways to think about Scrappin' and Journaling.

Phenomenal Woman
by Maya Angelou
Pretty woman wonder where my secret lies,
I'm not cute or built to fit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies,
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips,
I'm a woman
Phenomenally
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.
I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
and to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
They swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees,
I say,
Its the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally,
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.
Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try to show them,
But they can't touch
My inner mystery,
When I try to show them,
They say they still can't see,
I say,
It's the arch of my back
The sun in my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style,
I'm a woman
Phenomenally,
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.
Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing,
I ought to make you proud
I say,
It's the click of my heals,
The bend of my hair,
The need for my care.
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenally,
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.
