I love it! Phyllis is a wonderful poet who is not afraid to express emotion
in poems. I wish I was more like her.

Phyliss Wheatley seems to support slavery in all her poems. I don't know if
she is extremely positive or she is just not aware of her servitude.

This is an excellent written poem. THe first time I read it,it was
confusing with all the harder words, but the more I read it, the more I
liked the poem. Phillis Wheatley was a great poet and had a unique writting
style!

Phillis was a slave and a great woman who learned to read and write on her
own.

Emotionally fired up poem. Great rhymne. Children love to read. However
the words are hard to understand. Much is open to interpretation and a
study of Phillis Wheatley. Great source of understanding slavery and the
beginnings of the United States of America.
