His Day Is Done: A Nelson Mandela Tribute Read Online Free - He was a son of Africa who became father to a nation and, for billions of people around the world, a beacon of hope, courage, and perseverance in the face of opposition. Now, acclaimed poet Maya Angelou honors the life and remarkable soul of Nelson Mandela, former president of South Africa and Nobel laureate.
 
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.

Have always loved Maya's work. Some of it more profound than others, but NEVER a waste of time! So sad reading it because she wrote for everyone. Now, who will write with love for us all?

Nice tribute to Mandela's life complete with photos, but very short to be sold as an individual work.
