What’s Your “Song?”

Bird singing-birdYou know I LOVE Maya Angelou. I often quote her. Because I have birds that talk to me, I MUST correct a bird misquote.

The quote, and shortened book title, “I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings” is incorrectly attributed to Maya. Actually, Joan Walsh Anglund (born c. 1926), an American poet and children’s book author, wrote in “A Cup of Sun: A Book of Poems” published in 1967:

“A bird does not sing because he has an answer. He sings because he has a song.”

What’s your song?

Sing it!
