Women Work - Maya Angelou | English PLV

Maya Angelou

Women Work
Maya Angelou
---

I've got the children to tend
The clothes to mend
The floor to mop
The food to shop
Then the chicken to fry
The baby to dry
I got company to feed
The garden to weed
I've got shirts to press
The tots to dress
The can to be cut
I gotta clean up this hut
Then see about the sick
And the cotton to pick.

Shine on me, sunshine

Rain on me, rain

Fall softly, dewdrops
And cool my brow again.


Storm, blow me from here

With your fiercest wind

Let me float across the sky
'Til I can rest again.


Fall gently, snowflakes

Cover me with white

Cold icy kisses and
Let me rest tonight.


Sun, rain, curving sky

Mountain, oceans, leaf and stone

Star shine, moon glow
You're all that I can call my own.
