The poem is "Sympathy" by Paul Lawrence Dunbar a line from which Maya Angelou took the title of her autobiography I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.
That said, the hoodie is an inspiration. The applique is the perfect accompaniment to the text.

I have read Maya Angelou's novel I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings as well as the poem. I'm familiar with Paul Paul Lawrence Dunbar's work but had no idea that his poem Sympathy inspired her poem and the title of her autobiography. Thanks for the info and the nice comments : )
