Fairy Bread

Come up here, O dusty feet!
Here is fairy ready to eat.
Here in my retiring room,
Children ,you may dine
On the golden smell of broom
And the shade of pine;
And when you have eaten well,
Fairy stories hear and tell.

by Robert Louis Stevenson

Maya Angelou is a strong woman who cares about the rights of other women.
When was the poem itself first published?
Beautiful piece of poetry. I am inspired.
The years And cold defeat live deep in Lines along my face. Lovely. Emotions flow in the veins of the poetess so lucid like poetry.
