Gwendolyn Brooks - The Crazy Woman

I shall not sing a May song.
A May song should be gay.
I'll wait until November
And sing a song of gray.

I'll wait until November
That is the time for me.
I'll go out in the frosty dark
And sing most terribly.

And all the little people
Will stare at me and say,
"That is the Crazy Woman
Who would not sing in May."

This poem is great! I love how it rhymes and ,also, how it immediately catches ones attention. I am doing a Black History Month project on her and this is the poem I like the best. That is, next to "We Real Cool"
