In "His Day is Done, " Angelou delivers an authentically heartfelt and elegant tribute to Mandela, who stood as David to the mighty Goliath of Apartheid and who, after twenty-seven years of unjust imprisonment on the notorious Robben Island, emerged with "His stupendous heart intact / His gargantuan will / Hale and hearty" to lead his people into a new era.
This poignant work of gratitude and remembrance offers condolences to the resilient people of South Africa on the loss of their beloved "Madiba" and celebrates a man like no other, whose life and work changed the world.
