Morning Noon Evening




THEY please me not--these solemn songs
That hint of sermons covered up.
'T is true the world should heed its wrongs,
           But in a poem let me sup,
Not simples brewed to cure or ease
Humanity's confessed disease,
But the spirit-wine of a singing line,
           Or a dew-drop in a honey cup!

Paul Laurence Dunbar 
June 27, 1872 – February 9, 1906

P.L. Dunbar a great poet and thinker very much admired.
