Feedback Friday #5: "The Crazy Woman"

Updated: May 18, 2020

We're back with another Feedback Friday with Brooks Permissions' TECHFACE, Darius Colquitt!

Today's Feedback Friday Piece:

The Crazy Woman by Gwendolyn Brooks

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."
